“Encouraging the growth of the private sector and more business investment in the North East is a priority”

Enabling science Synthesis Dispersion, functionalisation & formulation Applications development Characterisation & measurement Safety, health and environment advice

The good news is that the supply chain is now basically fixed. In the last couple of years the number of commercially available nano-enabled products has grown from a handful to thousands of consumer products. For example, nanomaterials enable most touch screens on PDAs to be scratch resistant, similarly automobile paints. Sun screens are transparent, and medicines more fast acting thanks to materials scaled at the nano size. Nano particles help remove toxic waste from water supplies and remediate soils. In short, there are real societal benefits to be gained by the safe development of nanomaterials in markets ranging from medical, through composites, to transport, to clean technology: the list is endless.

It’s hard to believe that it was just over three years ago that NanoCentral was set up to be the pivotal gateway for nanomaterials commercialisation in the UK. Established as part of a central government initiative to help the UK benefit from the emerging field of nanotechnology via the creation of an expert industrial alliance, it was designed to fix a market failure in the supply chain for nanomaterials. We knew then that the use of nanomaterials offered enormous potential for product innovation, enabling entirely new products to meet evolving needs, creating discernable improvements in performance, refreshing products nearing the end of their life cycles and adding value to brands. We knew that for manufacturers, nanomaterials also offered the opportunity to shorten production processes, reduce energy requirements, minimize raw material requirements and increase efficiency overall.

Targeted interventions in high growth sectors have been a key strand of One North East’s Regional Economic Strategy. By making strategic, and catalytic investments in new innovations and low carbon technologies, One North East aims to create higher value sustainable jobs for the region. Over the past decade, seven Innovation Connectors have been created (Newcastle Science City; Energy Innovation Connector; the Northern Design Centre; Digital City; the Wilton Centre; Sunderland Software City; and NETPark), to drive forward a physical focus for science and innovation activities that will help support overall regional growth, and at the same time boost the regeneration of a particular area. The Connectors are enabling the development of world-class facilities through new approaches to integrating business and universities, engagement with communities, particularly through education, awareness raising and access to employment programmes.

Backed by the Technology Strategy Board, One North East (the local regional development agency) and the Centre for Process Innovation, NanoCentral was set up in the traditional heart of the science and chemical sector at the Wilton Centre on Teesside. NanoCentral was an especially good fit with the primary aim of One North East to grow the economy of the region in a way that makes it sustainable and competitive for the future. The Agency invests in the region through business support, innovation, enterprise, inward investment, skills and physical regeneration. Encouraging the growth of the private sector and more business investment in the North East is a priority, but so too is making sure the people of the region benefit from its improved prosperity.

As world-class experts in nanomaterials technology, NanoCentral has helped companies overcome existing problems. It has also assisted them to develop innovative bespoke solutions to new challenges by providing access to expertise, leading edge technologies and facilities from within its extensive alliance of technology Providers. NanoCentral has continually captured emerging technologies from a wide range of industry sectors, and academia and made them available to all the emerging market sectors. NanoCentral has uniquely provided existing and potential manufacturers and users of nanomaterials a single point access to an integrated and comprehensive set of nanorelated capabilities encompassing:

So what remains to be done and what role can NanoCentral play in its delivery? Firstly we see the advent of a global trading exchange for nanomaterials being established in London. NanoCentral is at the heart of the project offering technical expertise and providing the Exchanges’s first chairman, namely myself. Secondly, SHE concerns around nanomaterials and nanotechnology remain a key area in which the industry needs to engage and re-assure the wider community. NanoCentral has supported a number of government projects to this end, but even more practically has set up a spin out business, AssuredNano® to deliver a Nanomaterial SHE Accreditation Scheme along the lines of the Chemical Industry’s responsible care programme and fully integratable with ISO type standards. Thirdly, NanoCentral’s annual conference, NanoMaterials2010 is now firmly established as the premier commercial event in the nanotechnology and nanomaterials space. As ever, NanoMaterials seeks to enhance its value added offer each year and the forthcoming conference in London in June will continue this tradition. Finally, NanoCentral launches its global resource guide, NanoPerspectiveTM , which will become the industry’s standard reference to who is who and key providers of enabling support. As you will see from the above, we are not short of self-imposed challenges, but all told we remain confident that the next three years will be a successful and eventful as the last.

Epigem The Fluence Centre

Epigem provides customer support through invention, product development services and commercial manufacture of nanotechnology enabled products. Our 35 year track record of innovation spans all aspects of nanotechnology. Development Agency, OneNE, to provide micro and nanotechnology integration services. To date, the Fluence Microfluidics Centre (www. fluence.co.uk) has supported 46 companies and 24 Universities with 30% International clients. Much of the research of our clients is leading edge and has been published at Conferences and Journals. Multinational companies and start up companies have been supported from the proof of concept stage through to commercialisation. The Fluence Centre also supplies microfluidic modules for training purposes to teach the basic microfluidic function including mixing, droplet generation and separation.

FOR EXAMPLE Natural layer minerals delaminated into nanoplatelets, acting as anticoagulation stabilisers for high temperature dispersion polymerisation, enabled tonne production of engineering thermoplastics; nanostructured mould tools and high precision replication processes enable micro optics and printed electronics for touch screens, displays, lighting and renewable energy applications; nanowires grown within nanoporous films enable high sensitivity nanosensors for point of care diagnostics; protein and cell lined microfluidic devices enable in vitro models of blood capillaries for drug discovery research. Epigem manufacture microfluidic consumable components, process control boards and printed and imprinted electronics for sensors and displays for commercial instrumentation used for bioanalysis and consumer electronics products. Extensive solution provision experience supports companies and Universities develop innovative new products and applications. Applications supported include medical research and diagnostics. For example: assays at the DNA, protein and cultured cell levels- for various screening environments; blood separation modules are providing both minimised sample collection and faster, higher precision analysis. Microfluidic fabrication processes are employed in manufacturing (as well as in products) in applications from chemicals synthesis to device fabrication . 6 success through nanomaterials

Epigem operate within the global community of technology developers concerned with product miniaturisation (motivation: smaller analyte and reagent quantities, point of care products) and process intensification (motivation: smaller, faster, more efficient, lower cost, environmentally better). Polymer microfabrication - in the hands of Epigem has now become both multifunctional – enabling the integration of optics, electronics, fluidics, magnetics, biology, etc. and multidomain – enabling silicon sensors and control and data processing to be packaged within multilayer boards. This is enabling the miniaturisation of chemical and biological analysis and convergence with electronics and communications technology. Other applications include environment protection, forensics and food safety. The processes operated by Epigem enable chemicals, polymers and biochemicals to be synthesised, formulated, manipulated and delivered, in the form of thin coatings on rigid or flexible substrates and in the form of fine droplets processed within hair-like channels (100 microns dimensions) or delivered as sprays. Droplet processing within the laminar flow environment of microfluidics enables complex emulsions and encapsulation to be undertaken relevant to therapeutic and diagnostic healthcare. In 2006 Epigem were contracted by central Government, the EU and the Regional

The general strategy of Fluence is to develop and supply multilayer processor boards (like printed circuit boards plus biology, optics etc as well electrical circuits). A series of combinable functions are either connected within a single layer or between layers or between separate boards, where one board could be re-usable and another disposable. The functions provided can be fluidic. For example, liquid and gases can be pumped along channels and flow controlled using pneumatically actuated diaphragm valves. Electrical circuity can be integrated for connection to sensors or actuators or comprise electrodes for sensing or separation or pumping. Proprietary leak free sealing techniques enable fluid connection between modules at the micron scale. Polymer micro-optics can be integrated or optoelectronic light sources and detectors. The Centre uses a range of fabrication processes for creating these functional microstructures and for controlling surface chemistry such as channel wall wetting characteristics. Microfluidic fabrication processes for printing and imprinting coatings and microstructures are also being used to develop high volume polymer electronics products such as flexible displays that themselves could in the future become integrated with bioelectronic multiparameter sensors.

NanoCentral® success through nanomaterials

“We provide, for the first time, a dynamic hub of technical knowledge and broad business experience dedicated to making the connections that will accelerate the nanomaterials revolution.”

NanoCentral® exists to accelerate the commercialisation of value-adding nanomaterials. Its hub of technical expertise and broad business experience is strategically placed to forge links with a network of suppliers, increase awareness of competitive advantages derived from nanomaterials, and access Safety, Health and Environmental advice. For a business aiming to achieve success through nanomaterials we will assemble the complete solution for market. The use of nanomaterials can revitalise products, improve the quality, value and performance of brands, make industry more efficient, conserve energy, save lives, reduce pollution, create dynamic new business, increase corporate profits and energise the UK economy for decades to come.

for the first time, a dynamic hub of technical knowledge and broad business experience dedicated to making the connections that will accelerate the nanomaterials revolution.

All this is made possible by the pronounced changes in the properties of materials when they are engineered down to nanometre (1 billionth of a metre) scale. In very small quantities nanomaterials can make big differences. But it is taking time for the vigorous activity at the lab bench to feed through into new products on the warehouse and supermarket shelf.

MARKET Developing a nanomaterial usually requires synthesis to produce it, followed by formulation into a usable state, characterisation of properties, SHE testing and then application development to deliver a market benefit. Suppliers tend to specialise in a particular stage. Many are new. Few span the whole cycle. As a not-for-profit organisation, NanoCentral® is forging links between suppliers and injecting expertise to put together collaborations across the supply chain.

NanoCentral® is here to overcome the obstacles to commercialisation: disjointed supply chains; lack of understanding by industry and health, safety and environmental concerns. We provide,

AWARENESS Nanomaterials can add value to products for both business and consumers: for example, tougher cutting tools, self-cleaning windows,

creamier cosmetics, cheaper tyres, longer lasting medical implants. But industry is not fully realising such competitive advantages. NanoCentral® is busy creating awareness and building bridges with nanomaterial suppliers so that increased demand will pull innovation through into practice. RISK REDUCTION Because the properties of materials change at the nano scale, their effect on the human body and nature might not be the same as that of bulk materials. Concern from environmental groups is becoming vocal. NanoCentral® is working to publish SHE related advice; spread best practice and connect suppliers with expertise like that provided by AssuredNano and the Institute of Occupational Medicine.

Why Nano? As things become nano-sized, many properties can change - optical, magnetic, thermal, flow, toughness, reactivity and electrical conductivity. Almost everything else you can think of is likely to be different. For instance, opaque substances become transparent (copper); stable materials become combustible (aluminium); solids turn into liquids at room temperature (gold); insulators become conductors (silicon). That’s because, as well as size that’s invisible to the human eye, a nanoparticle has much more surface area than the same material in the bulk form used in conventional industrial processes. IN HISTORY All matter – living and non-living – originates at nano-scale. Interstellar dust contains Fullerenes, spherical carbon cage molecules about 0.71.5 nanometres (1 nanometre = 1 billionth metre) in diameter. In nature, nanomaterials already bestow benefits. The superfine hairs on a gecko’s feet allow it to stick to walls and even to hang upside down on a glass sheet Without knowing it, people have long been using nanomaterials to beneficial effect. Medieval artists incorporated gold nanoparticles into church windows to achieve a bright red colour (gold nano particles are red not golden). Tyre manufacturers used nanoparticles in the form of carbon black as early as the 1920’s to make them last longer.

“Without knowing it, people have long been using nanomaterials to beneficial effect.”

TODAY With raw materials becoming scarcer, the quest today is to get more from less. New technologies such as the atomic force microscope and electron beam lithography make it possible to engineer particles to achieve a desired effect – products that are smaller, lighter, stronger, more efficient and cheaper to produce using less energy and raw material. Nanomaterials are already appearing in flash memories, computer chips and self-cleaning windows. Materials with new properties are being created within chemistry and biology. Carbon nanomaterials are amongst the most promising products of nanotechnology. Carbon nanotubes – rolled-up sheets of Fullerenes – have seven times more tensile strength than steel and are the most efficient electrical conductors ever made, giving them great potential in reinforced composites and sensors. Medical science is exploring how to make materials that bind specific antibiotics to the structure of target resistant bacteria and even target cancer cells such as melanoma.

The Future

Nanotechnology will increasingly enable new products in the fields of coatings and sensors. It is expected to transform the performance of materials like polymers, electronics, paints, batteries, sensors, fuel cells, solar cells, coatings, computers and display systems. In five years time batteries lasting only last three days will be a memory. An MP3 will have at least 10 times its current storage capacity. In the not-so-distant future, a terabit of data equivalent to 10 hours of fine quality uncompressed video - will be stored on an area the size of a postage stamp. Fabrics could change colour electronically: exposing an army uniform to ultra-violet light could activate changes without undressing. Source: Institute of Nanotechnology

The Environment and nanomaterials

On the one hand nanomaterials can affect the environment, on the other they can help to resolve environmental problems. So far there has been little research into their impact and beneficial applications are still evolving. Based on evidence so far here are some of the possibilities.

IMPACTS Assessment based on research into the environmental effects of other small particles, such as pollutants, raises concern about how nanoparticles might behave in air, water and soil, their effect on plants and animals and their ability to accumulate in the food chain. BENEFITS Here are some of the directions research is taking and the benefits that could result from the practical application of nanoscience: n Pollution control

The large surface area compared to volume of nano-sized materials make them very active in terms of their chemical, physical and mechanical properties. They can potentially be used as catalysts to react with noxious gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide in car exhaust catalytic converters and power generation equipment, replacing the use of precious metals. In the USA the use of nanoparticles to remove organic pollutants from soils and groundwater has been studied. 10 success through nanomaterials

n Water purification

n Fuel efficiency

Nano-engineered membranes could enable more energy efficient water purification. A new technique called electrospinning uses electrical rather than mechanical forces to spin cellulose (a problem waste product in textile production) into fibres less than 1000 nanometres in diameter, potentially creating a molecular sieve.

A conventional spark plug does not fully combust the fuel, but the use of water and corrosion resistant nanomaterials in spark plugs could make them last longer and combust fuel more efficiently. In future engine cylinders could be lined with nano-ceramics to retain heat better and result in more complete combustion of fuel.

n Power conservation

The life of today’s conventional and rechargeable batteries is low, but nanocrystalline materials synthesised by sol-gel techniques are candidates for the battery separator plates because their foam- like (aerogel) structure can hold considerably more energy. Furthermore batteries made from nanocrystalline nickel and metal hydrides require far less recharging.

n Photovoltaics

Nanoparticles of semiconductors – quantum dots – could make more efficient solar cells. By exploiting the quantum effects that emerge at such a small scale, the particles can be fine tuned to absorb the particular colours of light in sunlight. n Greenhouse gas reduction

n Environmental monitoring

Sensors made from nanocrystalline materials are extremely sensitive to change in their environments. Typical applications are pollution detection, smoke detection, ice detection on aircraft wings and monitoring mechanical stresses within buildings.

Nanoparticles in paint technology offer the possibility of thinner, and therefore lighter, coatings which could reduce, for example, the weight of aircraft and so help to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Microsphere Technology A new spin on old technology

In an area such as nanotechnology, which is commonly viewed as cutting edge, there seems little opportunity to draw inspiration from technology which is nearly half a century old.

However, Irish-based company Microsphere Technology Limited has done just that in creating functional, low density, nanolayercoated microparticles, which are currently attracting the attention of industries as diverse as aerospace, defence, water treatment, oil and cosmetics.

to the surface of the hollow glass particles, hybrid materials are generated which retain the functionality of the coating material itself, but with the benefits of significantly reduced density (typically to between 0.2 and 0.8 g/cc), better handling/recovery properties and improved particle/matrix interfacial strength.

The company, which is US owned, has developed its coated particle technology based on hollow glass microspheres (sometimes termed microballoons, or glass bubbles). Hollow glass microspheres have been used as low-density fillers for various kinds of polymeric compounds since the mid-1960s. They are gas-filled, spherical borosilicate particles with diameters typically between 10 and 100 microns. Despite their structure, the spheres can have extremely high compressive strength and are routinely used as fillers in concretes, syntactic foams and other structural components, particularly in the marine and aerospace sectors. The spheres are manufactured on an enormous scale by several companies worldwide and, as such, offer a low cost, readily available substrate to which functionality and value can be added.

Microsphere Technology is currently establishing production lines for its silver and titanium dioxide coated products in Ireland. The silver-coated product range, termed Conductospheres, is targeted primarily at conductive coatings and EMI shielding applications. Coatings, adhesives and fillers containing low density, conductive particles with the ability to shield critical components, dissipate electrostatic charge and even provide radar absorption properties, are of particular interest to the aerospace and defence sectors.

Microsphere Technology has developed manufacturing processes for covalently coupling a variety of materials as nanolayers to the surface of hollow glass microspheres. Metals, metal oxides, pigments and dyes have been successfully applied as coatings. By adding less than 100 nanometers of coating material 12 success through nanomaterials

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a pigment commonly used in everyday products such as paint, toothpastes and as a food colouring. It has the ability to generate oxygen radicals in the presence of near-UV light (<388nm) which can in turn break down organic compounds. This ‘photocatalytic’ effect is of interest to the water industry, particularly in treating specialist waste streams produced by certain manufacturing processes. The common form of TiO2 is as a nanoparticulate, but presenting it as a nanolayer on a buoyant, filterable microparticle has clear advantages in terms of handling and

recoverability. Microsphere Technology has named its TiO2-coated product ‘Photospheres’ and is already working with application specialists in the water treatment sector to bring this exciting technology towards the mainstream market. With many other coatings well advanced in their product pipeline, the possibilities for Microsphere Technology’s materials seem endless. Interest is set to grow even further as the profile of weight saving materials is enhanced due to the increase in both oil prices and environmental awareness. However, the company is still looking to expand its product portfolio through active research programs on other core particles, which will both complement and extend the physical properties already offered by its hollow glass microsphere range. As might be expected from all this, Microsphere Technology offers technical consultancy services to those interested in exploring the area of coated microparticles with relevance to their own application areas. Contract development and bespoke particle production services also provide interested parties with the possibility of obtaining exactly the material they need for their own product development trials.

Our Services A company aiming to use nanomaterials to commercial advantage needs only to come to us and we will put together the Providers to deliver a solution that works. The Network of technology platforms, co-ordinated by NanoCentral® at the Hub, reflects today’s nanomaterials supply chain. THE RANGE For a nanomaterial to go from production to end-use, it typically progresses across the series of technology platforms listed below. The biggest barrier to commercialisation has been the fragmented nature of this supply chain. Providers tend to specialise in a particular stage. Many are new. There has been no agency to co-ordinate their activities - until the arrival of NanoCentral®. n Particle Production

Customers need access to a wide range of reasonably priced nanomaterials in quantities appropriate for feasibility and development programmes. Ideally, these should be produced using a number of different processing techniques, thereby providing customers with a wide choice of particle properties and characteristics. Open access to Particle Production processes via NanoCentral® encourages customers, previously dissuaded by high risk and capital cost, to evaluate nanomaterials as part of their product offerings. n Formulation and Dispersion

With the exception of a few specialised applications requiring dry powder, nanomaterials need to be supplied in a stable form within a liquid carrier compatible with forward processing steps. The inability, particularly of smaller nanomaterial producers, to provide end-users with materials in a consistent, well formulated and dispersed form is a significant obstacle to nanomaterial commercialisation. NanoCentral® offers access to leading edge dispersion and stabilisation capabilities.

14 success through nanomaterials

n Applications Development

Once nanomaterials have been formulated and dispersed, they typically go through further processing such as extrusion, injection moulding, inkjet printing, spray coating etc. As nanomaterials behave differently in applications, it is vital to know why. NanoCentral® makes available open access applications equipment to provide answers and characterise the material before and after processing. Equally important is understanding the impact of nanomaterials on applications equipment in terms of flow, erosion and health & safety. n Characterisation

The development of new nanomaterials in the UK is frustrated by difficulties in sourcing well-characterised raw materials supplied consistently to specification. NanoCentral®’s characterisation platform is designed specifically to address this issue. n Heath, Safety and Environment

Despite science fiction tales of self-replicating nano machines reducing the planet to grey goo, there is no widespread public concern about nanotechnology. However, media interest and pressure group attention is building up, and public opinion on the risks and benefits will take shape sooner rather than later. As yet there are not enough data about the effects of engineered nanomaterials on the human body and the environment. NanoCentral® is well placed to help ensure these uncertainties are addressed in a coherent, scientific way.

Primary Dispersions Ltd The world’s most advanced nanomaterial dispersion technology

One of the most significant problems holding back the successful application of nanomaterials is difficulty in achieving optimal dispersion. Whilst nanomaterials synthesis has developed to the extent that there are now often several routes to manufacture, by and large dispersion technology has remained the province of high shear stator rotor mixers and media mills. Typically both achieve deaggregation and some degree of de-agglomeration, but insufficient to deliver the significant economic benefits offered by well dispersed nanopaticles.

At last a major breakthrough in dispersion technology is available. Primary Dispersion Limited now offers a step change in nanomaterial dispersion via application of Maelstrom APT’s Concor® technology yielding particle sizes down to 5nm.

SUSPROC The Sustainable Processing Centre

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is a lead driver of innovation within the UK’s processing sector. As part of its remit CPI has successfully established the Sustainable Processing Centre (SUSPROC); a unique facility that aims to convert ideas to commercially sustainable processes. We operate a unique approach: by bringing together market ‘pull’ from industry with technology ‘push’ from academia we are able to stimulate market-led innovation, addressing the real needs of the process industry in the 21st century. TECHNOLOGY AREAS SUSPROC, a CPI business unit houses a wide range of novel chemical processing equipment and our track record shows that, with the right application of technology and know-how, often previously insurmountable technical challenges can be overcome. We utilise the Corning Advanced Flow Reactor, spinning disk reactors, baffle flow reactors and other novel technologies to both overcome processing issues and to improve existing processes. The Corning continuous reactor has been developed to revolutionise process reactions for a wide range of applications. It is compact, adaptable and scalable, with potential to reduce manufacturing costs whilst increasing product consistency within high-value speciality, fine and pharmaceutical chemical manufacturing.

Its glass structure resists corrosion effects, unlike many alternative metallic reactors, and can withstand pressures of up to18 bar within a temperature range of -60 to +200oC, thus providing a truly unique proposition for highly reactive processes. Together, SUSPROC and Corning collaborate with prospective industrial clients to evaluate their current processes and perform initial continuous process feasibility studies. The Particulate Processing Laboratory is SUSPROC’s latest undertaking and focuses on exploring novel technologies backed up with standard techniques. Activities include continuous crystallisation, co-crystallisation, production of nanoparticle dispersions and formulation emulsions. The Particulate Processing Unit (PPU) offers to take a batch reaction to continuous, providing crystallisations of consistent size and morphology. Control capabilities include the use of antisolvent, pH adjustment and temperature. Controlled temperature profiles allow processes to be viewed as it progresses; a reduction in

the number of process steps may result. Other benefits include better and safer handling of starting materials and products, a reduction in process costs, ease of clean down and reduction of waste. Applications are many and diverse, from the pharmaceutical industry to chemical processes and the food industry. The Con-Cor Mill introduces intensive mixing in order to produce discrete primary particles in stable dispersions. It can manage multiple material streams and liquid batch sizes of up to 5 litres, with or without suspended particulates. Applications include APIs, nanostructuring food grade pigment dispersions for coatings and inks, inorganic sunscreens, fuel catalysts, printable electronics and flame retardants. Ultimately, all of these technologies, supported by the experience and expertise of SUSPROC people, make our facility the preferred choice for the advancement of new and existing processes in the search for sustainable technical solutions.

Bristol Colloid Centre Materials Research and Development

The Bristol Colloid Centre specialises in applying science to problems in technology. This includes education, professional development, bench-marking and assessing the quality of IP you may wish acquire and expert witness work.

The BCC is a contract research organisation, but of a very unusual kind. Unlike many contract research organisations, the BCC specialises not only in solving problems but also in transferring an understanding of the nature of the problems and the solutions to the customer. We work hard to demystify the systems we investigate. This is of tremendous benefit to the users of our services.

you’ve got works, you must also know how it works in order to outperform competitors, and comply with regulatory bodies or restricting environmental protocols.

It can be very difficult to obtain an understanding of complicated ‘real world’ products. University research typically has a tendency towards simplification which can eliminate the technological areas of interest. However by working with the BCC, not only will you receive a solution to your current issues but you will also gain ‘high quality understanding’ which will assist with trouble-shooting or the development of new products. This services a market need: it is no longer good enough just to know what

Another way in which the BCC is special is that we do not depend on a particular market sector. The BCC has grown from the disciplines of polymer, colloid, surface and surfactant science, all of which have been very strong in Bristol for more than a century. These are enabling fields which are widely used in a variety of technologies and which are not sector specific. This is clearly an advantage to both the BCC and our customers in that it helps to maintain the stability of the organisation, buffering us

These factors in particular make the BCC special, since we are not just a technology transfer organisation but we also specialise in the transfer of understanding and science to the user.

against fluctuations in the market and enabling continuity with our customers. The BCC’s broad sector base does have another very important aspect. It means that we can use background IP obtained from one technology and utilise this in another. This cross-fertilisation of ideas is very nearly unique in the field: it is based on experience built up over 15 years of BCC research, and in an environment of many decades of research in Bristol - a pattern difficult to replicate elsewhere. Accordingly the BCC has a broad base of activities. As a customer you should not think of the BCC as just ‘colloids’, which of course is a core expertise, but also as a group which can help with a wide raange of challenges. The BCC has tackled everything from new materials, formulation, processing, performance optimisation, proof of concept, proof of principle, proof of product, IP consultation and development, trouble-shooting, marketing demonstrators and small-scale material supply.

THE PROGRAMMES The types of programme we undertake follow the life cycle of a product (see flow diagram). We can help, either directly or by programme management, at every stage of the process. Below are some of the types of programmes we undertake, all of which are carried out under strict confidentiality unless otherwise agreed. CONCEPT GENERATION Sometimes all you have is a challenge, something you want to achieve but do not know how to proceed, or perhaps you are looking for different solutions to a particular idea. The BCC will listen to your challenge or idea and then organise brainstorming sessions, either involving the BCC’s own staff or setting-up a collaborative discussion with others, in order to develop a range of possible concepts to address your enquiry. These programmes typically take about a month to execute. You will receive a set of ideas at the end and suggestions for taking these forward. FEASIBILITY STUDIES These are well-defined product or problem orientated studies with higher levels of constraints. Here we are posed with a more specific challenge. The BCC uses a combination of brainstorming, commercial and scientific literature and patent searches to suggest options to address the task we are set. These typically take a few months to complete and may include experimental studies. The output typically consists of one or two options to take a longer programme of work forward.

MARKETING DEMONSTRATORS We fully appreciate that some industries are technologically or scientifically led whilst others are led by opportunities in the marketplace. Both models have some advantages depending upon the field. The BCC are used to producing ‘objects’ which are physical demonstrations of a product. They can be far from the finished article but show the possibility of what can be achieved. This often helps in securing the inclusion of a new concept in the marketing strategy of your company. It is very difficult to assess the length of these programmes, but on average they tend to take a couple of months.

PROOF OF CONCEPT OR PRINCIPLE These are experimental studies designed to show that it is feasible to produce a particular material or that a particular process is possible. They will not usually result in a finished product, although they might. However if the concept or principle is viable they will result in a pre-prototype. This will demonstrate that there are no insurmountable obstacles in getting to a product. These typically take 3-4 months although occasionally longer, depending upon the challenge. PROOF OF PRODUCT This is straightforward. The concept of a material profile is taken to generate a real material that has many of the attributes required in the product. It is difficult to generalise but a typical programme lasts between 6 and 18 months, depending upon the previous groundwork.

TROUBLE-SHOOTING When all else fails or as a last resort the BCC can help sort out critical issues. We have done so against the clock and under enormous pressure. As for the time-scales of these, they always tend to require results yesterday!

AssuredNano® The premier Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) accreditation scheme for nanotechnology organisations

Whilst public debate regarding the Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) implication of nanomaterials and nanotechnology remains relatively low key, public disquiet has already been generated by visions of “grey goo” of self-replicating nano-machines or “nanobots“. As nanomaterials and nanotechnology become more general in their application, such concerns will inevitably become more widespread, particularly those associated with nanomaterial synthesis, processing, use in application and disposal. It is vital that nanomaterial SHE concerns are addressed on a factual basis, underpinned by sound science, and that industry is seen to be taking a proactive and responsible stance in addressing potential consumer and societal concerns. For the exploitation of nanomaterials and nanotechnology to be successful, it is imperative that the health and safety of people exposed to nanomaterials or nano-enabled products is demonstrably safeguarded throughout the product life cycle (ie from cradle to grave). AssuredNano exists to overcome the obstacles to nanomaterial commercialisation resulting from SHE concerns. AssuredNano offers, for the first time, a way for responsible manufacturers to address nanomaterial SHE concerns based upon the use of good current practice. In so doing it provides a demonstration to all stakeholders in nanomaterials and nanotechnology that SHE issues are being taken seriously and tackled responsibly and that the health and safety of people exposed to nanomaterials or nano-enabled products will be ensured. Most importantly, AssuredNano is designed by industry experienced SHE experts to deliver a commonsense and realistic approach to nanomaterial SHE. WHAT WE DO AND HOW IT WORKS AssuredNano is the first comprehensive nanomaterial SHE accreditation scheme featuring annual compliance auditing. An organisation wishing to become accredited will be mentored through the requirements of the accreditation methodology via the provision of supervisory consultant support. Accreditation may be on a business unit or plant basis, whichever is the more applicable. However, multiple businesses on a single site will require multiple accreditations. Once prepared, the organisation is audited over the course of a day by an independent auditor from AssuredNano’s audit group. A successful organisation is then presented with its AssuredNano Accreditation Certificate, which is valid for one year. Organisations will also be entitled to display the AssuredNano logo on their stationery during the validity of their accreditation. It is expected that successfully accredited organisations will wish to demonstrate their status to their stakeholders and in particular their supply chain partners. It is also probable that successfully accredited organisations will wish to encourage their suppliers and customers to accredit in order to assure their in-bound and out-bound processes and reinforce the commitment to nanomaterial SHE throughout a supply chain. SCOPE AssuredNano is the nanomaterials SHE accreditation scheme for all organisations producing nanomaterials, nano-enabled products, plus users of nanotechnology in general. It promotes the responsible and proactive application of nanomaterial SHE good current practice within the nanomaterials and nanotechnology community. Its accreditation mark is much sought after as a demonstration to all stakeholders that an organisation values safety, is committed to good current practice and wishes to operate responsibly. 34 success through nanomaterials

AssuredNano is an accreditation scheme which is both comprehensive in its scope, but also in application. It has just as much relevance to the research group in a corporate or university laboratory as to a manufacturer of nanomaterials or nano-enabled products. It is equally applicable to the SME as to the global multinational company. THE BENEFITS Accreditation to AssuredNano demonstrates to all stakeholders that your organisation takes nanomaterial SHE seriously and is committed to the adoption and maintenance of good current practice. The fact that it is designed by industrially experienced SHE experts means that it promotes a commonsense approach to SHE. The AssuredNano Accreditation Scheme is the only accreditation scheme which is all-embracing, covering all facets of a nanomaterial or nanoenabled product’s life including: n n n n n

Management of manufacturing risk and exposure Loss of containment Packaging and transportation Life cycle analysis Disposal or recycle

The AssuredNano Accreditation Scheme is the only accreditation scheme which is annually audited on-site for compliance. A written report will be presented to the organisation following an audit detailing pass or fail, plus areas for improvement and corrective actions to be undertaken. Annual compliance audits demonstrate not only adherence to SHE good current practice, but also a commitment to continuous SHE improvement, reflecting progressively evolving nanomaterial SHE knowledge. The AssuredNano Accreditation Scheme is the only accreditation scheme underpinned by the technical expertise of the world renowned Institute of Occupational Medicine. BUILDING THE NANO SHE KNOWLEDGE BASE Pivotal to AssuredNano is its access to the key researchers and knowledge leaders in nanomaterial SHE. Its close links with the Institute of Occupational Medicine, the pre-eminent authority world-wide in nanomaterial SHE, ensures the credibility of AssuredNano’s technical methodology. As part of its offer AssuredNano promotes the timely dissemination of up to the minute nanomaterial SHE information and advice. It also organises conferences, workshops and events to promote debate and thought leadership within the world of nanomaterial SHE. By stimulating nanomaterial SHE awareness and advocating the adoption of evolving examples of good practice, AssuredNano will ensure nanomaterials and nanotechnology have a positive future.

Staying safe with nanotechnology The key issues and what to do about them

Fundamentally, businesses and organisations have a duty of care to their workers and

customers to ensure workplaces and products are safe.

There is increasing consensus that for nanotechnology to reach its maximum potential and achieve a sustainable acceptance globally, we must work not only to understand the hazards and exposure routes in order to minimise the risks, but to employ responsible and reasonable protective measures whilst there is still uncertainty. Of the many lessons the asbestos legacy provides nanotechnology, arguably one of the most important is the need to acknowledge, adopt and document the implementation of safe practice(s) in the light of new evidence confirming the existence of a risk. Risk analysis is key to achieving this. Risk analysis is the assessment, management and communication of potential harm across the life cycle of substances, processes or technologies, to eliminate or minimise any potential adverse impacts on people and the environment. The choice of appropriate risk management measures needs to be decided on a case-by-case basis in the context of the hazard and exposure assessments and regulatory requirements, through: 1. identifying and characterising potential risks and determine the need for control measures; 2. assessing the adequacy of existing control measures and if new measures are required to reduce the risks; 3. determining and implementing the appropriate risk management option(s), considering issues including: the nature and scale of the risks, costs, and technical feasibility; social and economic factors; ethical and cultural values; and local regulatory requirements; 4. developing and implementing a plan for monitoring, compliance checking, recording and updating the risk assessment(s) and risk management option(s). Underpinning the risk analysis process are a range of emerging and evolving recommendations and codes of practice for researchers handling nanomaterials, practice-based resources, guidance & standards, and accreditation schemes for organisations wishing to demonstrate their due diligence. The benefits to industry of adopting a proactive and comprehensive approach to nanotechnology risk management, using a life-cycle thinking approach, are that it provides: l

a basis for responsible stewardship of nanoproducts and nanotechnologies, providing evidence of compliance with existing (and anticipated) legislation; l foresight of emerging issues along the supply chain which can influence how risk is identified and controlled; l help to support strategic decision-making, investment, market access and product/ process developments; l a means to assess and manage potential business risk.

Design Council Inventing a profit, turning ideas into profit: The UK’s biggest challenge

If Bill Gates had been British, former Design Council chair Sir George Cox once remarked, he’d be running the largest software company in Guildford by now. The observation reflects the UK’s inconsistent record of commercialising the ideas it generates. But, as the finance sector’s share of GDP shrinks, commercialising good ideas – and selling them to the world – becomes central to the UK’s strategy for sustainable growth.

in innovative technology and commercialisation. There are regulatory and funding barriers to address to release the UK’s latent innovation.”

Technology is the new great hope – green tech, clean tech, nanotech, biotech, infotech. High-tech start-ups can spur innovation, create jobs, generate revenue and protect UK manufacturing, which isn’t dying so much as evolving, becoming more productive, qualified and cutting edge. One quarter of British exports are defined as high-tech (compared to 22% for the US, 15% for France and 11% for Germany).

Simon Phelps was one of 15 graduates on the Kauffman Global Scholarship Programme in 2007. While studying science and computer-aided design at Bournemouth University, Phelps had invented a new kind of flood barrier and wanted to know how to commercialise his invention.

Britain’s power-generating capacity and transport infrastructure need major investment, and the shift to a low-carbon economy will create opportunities. The key point, as CBI director general Richard Lambert noted recently, is whether the UK can capture the intellectual property and high-value jobs created by this investment, and that partly depends on protecting the country’s manufacturing supply chain. “A lot of businesses believe that if production goes abroad, you can keep R&D in the UK, but that’s not always the case. When you lose one, you often lose the other,” says Simon Coward, centre director of Norwich-based Hethel Engineering Centre, a local authority-owned enterprise hub that supports highperformance engineering and manufacturing companies and individuals. Coward says the UK cannot compete with China as a mass producer, so companies should focus on advanced manufacturing. The UK is comparatively strong in high-value manufacturing such as aerospace, defence, pharmaceuticals and life sciences and in June the government promised to invest £150m to help this kind of manufacturing flourish. The UK is second only to the US as the preferred location for foreign hightech investment. Lambert believes “the astonishing alchemy that comes from mixing great academics and great manufacturers” and the country’s “great engineering and design skills – think Dyson, Smith & Nephew or BAE Systems” could prove pivotal to the UK’s competitive strategy. Adam Afriyie, shadow minister for innovation, shares Lambert’s enthusiam, but adds a note of caution: “From the foundations of fibre optics at Imperial College to the development of the contraceptive pill at the University of Manchester, our scientists have led the way in a fast-changing technological world. But the UK’s strong history of scientific research has, sadly, not been matched with the ability to commercialise discoveries.” ABILITY, ALTRUISM AND AMERICAN CULTURE So how does this country close the gap between research and commercial development? The road from concept to long-term income can be long and arduous. Patents must be sought, ideas demonstrated, risks identified, commercial products integrated into the supply chain and marketed. While regional enterprise hubs such as Hethel can help with funding and specialist support, some pundits believe the UK just doesn’t have the entrepreneurial culture to succeed. “There is no shortage of creativity in this country, but the US is significantly better at commercialising technology,” says Matt Rogers, founder of technology start-up Aroxo, an online negotiating tool that matches buyers and sellers. “In the UK, we seem ashamed of seeking extraordinary success, and this holds us back.” Afriyie thinks there’s more to it. “We have the talent and capacity to do better. It’s often said the climate in America is more suited to investment 40 success through nanomaterials

Recognising that the US sets the gold standard for entrepreneurship, the British government and the Kansas City-based Kauffman Foundation have set up scholarship programmes for British innovators to learn from American entrepreneurs.

In an intense six-month programme, graduates learned everything from business plans to marketing, and were mentored by American entrepreneurs. Phelps was struck by the level of altruism among successful, self-made Americans. “They will give their time for free to aspiring entrepreneurs,” he says. “They’ll open up their Rolodex and give them contacts. In the UK, people are more reticent to help you in an altruistic way.” Such initiatives are worthwhile, but a broader structural approach is needed. That’s why the Design Council is helping British universities convert great ideas into commercial products with a programme called Innovate for Universities (see left). The scheme aims to accelerate the commercialisation of 24 breakthrough technologies and build design capability at technology transfer offices – university functions set up to identify promising technologies and take them to market. Many of these offices are staffed by people with science PhDs but scant commercial or design experience. “Technology transfer offices are traditionally happy spending money on patenting and market research, but less confortable spending on more exploratory stuff like design,” says Jesse Belgrave, a design and innovation manager at the Design Council. “We have an idea for a product, but who might the customer be? Let’s deal with that now rather than try and protect things that might not be worth much.” Innovate for Universities will help technology transfer offices understand early on that design can help inventors visualise what is different about their creation so they can attract investors. By shifting the focus from the technology to users and markets, the design associates who mentor the technology transfer offices can help reduce risk, maximise IP value and accelerate time to market. CREDIT, CASH FLOW AND DESIGN “Technology companies or universities with great ideas and research need to build solutions rapidly and roll them out,” says James Swanston, founder of Carbon Voyage, a car-booking service people can use to reduce their carbon footprint. “It is easy to continue to innovate in a research environment, but without testing against a real audience, great ideas can become redundant.” Cash flow is the other incentive for companies to get to market quickly. Even before venture capitalists went into hiding, they only invested a fraction of their cash in early-stage UK technology (£200m out of £34bn in 2007). While banks are lending again, credit is more expensive, so start-ups are more cash-strapped than ever. “When you’re in development, you’re not earning any revenues, so you need to get launched as fast as possible to stabilise the business,” says Aroxo’s Rogers. He and his business partner, Andrew Culpan, spent nearly three years developing their business and software. The website, launched this year, has already seen more than £40m of stock posted online from a wide variety of sellers, but the company has yet to seek investment from outsiders.

INDUSTRIAL APPLIANCE

“Technological ideas that seem useful to inventors can leave customers bewildered, indifferent or hostile” - Jaideep Prabhu from Cambridge University

fuel cell cleans dirty water by breaking down its organic compounds, and produces electricity at the same time. University of Cambridge, Velox - This small, battery-powered device uses oxygen to speed up the healing of chronic wounds (such as leg ulcers) in the patient’s home. York University, Automatic face-description software - Working f rom audio or video footage of faces, this software can work out age, ethnic background and gender instantly – ideal for market researchers.

Rogers believes that British high-tech start-ups need to start ‘bootstrapping’: using the founders’ personal money and doing everything as cheaply as possible. The Aroxo logo and brand was designed by a Croatian creative agency for £200, software development is outsourced to India and the company uses as much free, open-source software as it can. Fundraising can easily take a founder six months of full-time work. By raising funds at a later stage, a company will be more attractive to investors and get its finance on better terms. The downside to this approach is that rapidly dwindling cash and the fear of rival launches can cause start-ups to cut corners and launch too early. Jaideep Prabhu, Jawaharlal Nehru professor of Indian business and enterprise at Judge Business School, Cambridge University, says this can be fatal. When Prabhu studied the conversion rates of ideas into commercially successful products at pharmaceuticals companies, he found that firms pursuing a small number of new products over a moderate period of time commercialise more ideas than those that pursue lots of ideas in the hope some will sell. Companies, individuals and universities could save themselves time and money if they asked tough questions about their idea up front. Who will use this product? What customer need does it fulfil? How would you describe your product to someone you’d just met? “Technological ideas that seem obviously useful to inventors often leave customers bewildered, indifferent or hostile,” says Prabhu. Early over-valuation of an idea’s worth can lead university staff to fret about selling intellectual property too cheaply and leave potential partners worrying about disproportionate royalty cost. By appraising how a customer might actually use a concept, design can bring realism into this process. Britain is getting better at commercialising science and technology: in pre-credit crunch 2007, universities received £2.64bn from businesses and public services. But more could be done. “Other countries are getting better too,” cautions Belgrave. “There’s a race going on.” FROM RESEARCH TO INNOVATION The Design Council’s Innovate for Universities programme matches design teams with university research departments to speed up the development of technology ideas. Six universities are receiving 12 months of intensive design mentoring for their projects, including: n n n n

FROM RESEARCH TO RESULTS David Secher on the UK’s commercial success stories. In the past decade, sustained government funding to stimulate enterprise and external engagement in higher education has allowed UK universities to build the capability to turn research into products and create knowledgebased companies. The claim that the UK is good at inventing but poor at developing inventions into products is no longer true. The capabilities and performance of UK universities are now on a par with those in the USA. The culture among academics has changed. Most accept that universities play a key role in the competitiveness of British business and that entrepreneurship is vital to the economy. A recent Higher Education Funding consultancy services and 13% have taken out a patent. But it is still rare for scientists to move between universities and industry, and there is still a belief that sabbaticals in industry will damage academic careers. Since 2002, the Praxis programme has trained more than 2,000 technology transfer professionals in skills ranging from IP protection and commercialisation, to setting up a consultancy and design. In his 2007 review of British science and technology, Lord Sainsbury highlighted the benefits of incorporating design at an earlier stage into the process of commercialising university research and asked how design advice might be made available to universities. A joint workshop organised by Unico (now Praxis-Unico) and the Design Council has explored this question and, building on successful pilots at University College, London and Oxford, six leading universities have recently won a year’s design support for their technology transfer offices. The exciting combination of British design and universities holds great promise for the identification and delivery of the products of the future – surely a key part of our economic recovery.

Nanocarbon research is also well represented with work on superconductivity in fullerene based materials and new approaches for the synthesis of graphene, the newest member of the nanocarbon family. There is also an extensive programme on carbon nanotube research, Figures 2 and 3. Carbon nanotubes have attracted interest and excitement across a broad spectrum of sciences owing to their exceptional strength and high electrical and thermal conductivity. Researchers have developed the chemistry to enhance their dispersion in aqueous and non-aqueous solvents, to control their electronic properties for nanoelectronics and to improve their biocompatibility for the development of next generation drug delivery platforms and biosensors. We are also working in nanocomposites, studying the behaviour and properties of polymers that contain either carbon nanotubes, nanoclay or graphene based material.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Durham University Chemistry Department also has extensive experience in molecular electronics which is of great relevance to the realisation of next generation nanoscale electronic devices which will require controlling the properties of metal-molecule-metal junctions down to the singlemolecule level. Work in Durham in collaboration with colleagues at the Universities of Liverpool and Lancaster is addressing this issue from both an experimental and a theoretical viewpoint by designing, synthesising and assembling on metal surfaces molecules of 2-4 nm length and probing their electrical properties. These experiments, combined with detailed theoretical analysis, are shedding light on how individual molecules conduct and store electricity. These are the first steps towards the assembly of working molecular electronic devices of the future.

For further details contact the Facility Manager: Mrs Christine Richardson a.c.richardson@durham.ac.uk ENGINEERING & COMPUTING SCIENCES Much of the Durham University work on organic and nanoelectronics is coordinated by The Centre for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics (CMNE - www.durham.ac.uk/cmne). This was one of Durham University’s first interdisciplinary Research Centres, established in 1987 to promote relevant activities across academic departments within The University, in particular, the Departments of Chemistry, Physics and the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences. Over recent years, there has been a significant investment in the infrastructure for work in this area. For example, a new Clean Room, based in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences – the Molecular Electronics and Micro Systems laboratory - has been funded by the Royal Society, the Wolfson Foundation, Durham University and ONE North East. This class 100, 150 sq metre facility was opened by Sir David King (the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor) in 2004 and has the capability of processing hybrid device structures, i.e. using both silicon technology and organic materials. The room is fully equipped with all standard fabrication and analysis techniques. An extension to be completed in 2010 will allow the addition of a nanoimprint capability. 46 success through nanomaterials

Other work involves the development of components for organic electronics, a rapidly developing interdisciplinary technology aiming to produce electronic components based on carbon rather than silicon. Ongoing research projects include organic displays, organic lighting, plastic solar cells, organic transistors and chemical sensors. One important nanoelectronic device being developed in the School is an organic flash memory. The memory operates by storing electric charge on nanoparticles. This device can be manufactured from organic components and represents an important advance in the development of all-organic electronic circuits. A further ambitious interdisciplinary research programme is the Computational Carbon project, which combines the skills of Materials Scientists, Computer Scientists and Electronic Engineers within the School. An initial aim is to model and understand the behaviour of molecular networks (e.g. arrays of carbon nanotubes or conductive polymers). However, a long term goal is to build an electronic processor exploiting these architectures without reproducing individual component function - a computer without transistors!

The Open University

Since it was founded over 40 years ago The Open University has been at the forefront of groundbreaking interdisciplinary research. The area of nanotechnology is no exception with research covering a wide breadth of interests from polymer processing to the development of novel therapeutics. The Open University approaches nanotechnology from both a “top-down” and “bottom-up” perspective. Researchers in the Faculty of Mathematics, Computing and Technology, Department of Materials Engineering along with colleagues from the Faculty of Science, Department of Physics and Astronomy are investigating the roles of lithography and plasma etching in the production of components for nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) devices. This manufacturing technology uses waferscale processing techniques to shape materials such as silicon and glass into miniature physically or chemically active components. The main focus of the research involves designing 48 success through nanomaterials

sensors of various kinds (accelerometers, pressure sensors, CO2 sensors), as well as structures such as microfluidic devices and integrated optical chips. Surfaces are pivotal to materials engineering in that they determine the interaction of one engineered component with another, whether it be in a mechanical, chemical, or fluidic system, or in a semiconductor device. Because it is the outer few layers of atoms that interact it is necessary to use extremely fine tools for cutting, shaping, and forming a material. For this reason the tool of choice is often one that uses individual atoms or molecules to do the ‘machining’

Surface engineering of this kind usually utilises a ‘technological plasma’, involving the electrical breakdown of a gas to create ionised atoms and molecules that can perform useful engineering at the atomic scale. A key feature of a technological plasma is that the constituent charged particles are ‘hotter’ enabling chemistry to be performed at surfaces close to room temperature that conventionally wouldn’t be possible without a high temperature processing method. One particular area of expertise is that of semiconductor etching and wafer bonding where we are examining the use of low pressure electronegative plasmas.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Plasmas play a critical role in the nanoscale etching, deposition, and modification of surface layers. Applications include nanofabrication, electrical engineering, lighting, and biocompatible films. These are essential to a broad range of industries including those involving micro-machining, semiconductor device fabrication, display equipment manufacture and the engineering of materials for medicine. The Open University has a wide-range of equipment, facilities and techniques which facilitate nanotechnology research including X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS), electron microscopy (SEM, TEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM). We house one of only twenty nano-scale secondary ion mass spectrometers (NanoSIMS) worldwide. Research interests also include the production of new nanomaterials for industrial applications; these include Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxane (POSS) nanocomposites. In an emerging area of new materials research and development, the use of POSS molecules as additives and fillers in polymers shows dramatic improvements in material properties and performance. Attachment of organic functionality to silsesquioxane nanocomposites leads to novel materials such as liquid crystals, DNA chips and metal coordinating ligands. As well as using the nanocomposites to build molecules with interesting properties such as light emitting diodes and junctions for molecular wires, the

OU is also working towards the development of bespoke extended structures such as nanotubes. The Open University also has an interest in polymer processing and structure, in particular understanding and predicting the effects of molecular variables during polymer processing. Having developed a technique to produce silver, gold and platinum nanoparticles using a phage display methodology, the OU has expertise in the use and development of metallic nanoparticles as catalysts in industrial applications as well as an expertise in the development of novel nanobiomedical applications. One area of interest is investigating the use of aptamers as novel targeting, imaging and diagnostic agents with applications in a variety of diseases. Aptamers are single-stranded nucleic acids that fold into well defined 3D structures, which are able to recognize molecules, such as proteins, phospholipids, sugars and nucleic acids, with high affinity and specificity. Aptamers offer significant advantages over their protein-based counterparts as targeting entities and will form the basis of future imaging and diagnostic reagents that will make a significant difference in disease prognosis, early diagnosis and monitoring. They form targeted therapeutics that will potentiate the generation of high efficacy and specificity treatments and minimise undesired side effects or biorecognition units in aptamer-based sensors.

also extends to the area of nanotechnology. A number of courses offered include aspects of nanotechnology; including “Science in context” which explores the communication, risk, ethics and decision-making of modern scientific issues including nanotechnology and “Engineering small worlds” which introduces the science and engineering at the micro- and nano-scale and how these relate to industrial applications.

NanoHex Enhanced Nano-Fluid Heat Exchange

Transforming the future of heat management NanoHex is an €8.3 million FP7 project, led by Northumberland based Thermacore Europe Ltd and involving 12 top organisations from Europe and Israel. It aims to transform the future of heat management, combating heat build up in high tech industries with an innovative nanothermal fluid that has been shown to increase cooling efficiency by more than 40%. Industrial cooling accounts for 7% of all electrical consumption in Western Europe and as the trend for faster, smaller, higher powered technology intensifies, the need for higher-performance, more energy efficient cooling systems will only increase. As products continue to bear increasing heat loads due to additional power or a reduction in size, cooling has become one of the chief technical challenges facing high tech industry. Many industries currently employ heat transfer fluids such as water, glycol and oil, but research has shown that the dispersal of particles smaller than 100nm (nanoparticles) into these fluids can significantly enhance their thermal capabilities. Conventional cooling systems combat escalating heat loads by increasing the areas available for heat transfer or actively chilling coolants. But these methods are not cost effective and increase the size and complexity of the cooling equipment. The concept of adding solid particles to a liquid in order to enhance its thermal conductivity is not new but modern nanotechnology is now capable of producing nanoparticles smaller than 100nm, with some unique properties. Nanoparticles remain suspended in liquid longer and provide a much higher surface area, thus enhancing heat conduction far better than the fluid alone. NanoHex will formulate a maximum performance, commercial nanothermal fluid and develop operational nanofluid cooling systems for use by industries currently constrained by high heat loads and the rising cost of cooling. Data centres and electric vehicles are just two of the areas that NanoHex will explore, where the application of a nanothermal fluid has the potential to significantly improve energy efficiency, further advance technology and reduce costs. Whilst nanopowders are already commercially available, there is currently no commercial source of nanothermal fluid anywhere in the world. NanoHex will work to establish nanothermal fluids as a commercial product and manufacture them on a commercial scale. European funding was secured with the help of Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) for the North East, an initiative managed by The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) in partnership with One North East. “Thermacore were keen to get involved with such an innovative project that could revolutionise cooling for the 21st Century.” Said David Mullen, Thermacore’s Senior Research and Development Engineer and Project Director for NanoHex. “Enterprise Europe Network North East not only helped us to secure funding for the project but connected us with leading organisations in the fields of nanotechnology and heat management and have been invaluable in helping us to get this project off the ground.” Find out more at www.nanohex.eu

Qudos Technology Ltd One of the leading Science parks in the UK, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, houses Qudos Technology Ltd

A micro and nanotechnology company that has been at the forefront of industry developments since its inception in 1985. Operating from a class 1-100 research and development cleanroom facility, Qudos has built a reputation for innovation and expertise in applying micro and nano-scale concepts to devices, turning ideas into reality. Organisations, from micro companies and SMEs to large multinational corporations have been able to take their ideas from the drawing board to production, making use of the specific prototyping skills offered by Qudos. It is now commonplace for Universities, spin-outs and SMEs to collaborate on ground-breaking research and development projects, working on applications to benefit a wide range of sectors. Qudos has both led and partnered in several such projects. Three years ago, Qudos Technology applied for and won a grant to support the formation of the National Prototype Facility (NPF). The project goal was to create a regional Centre of Excellence to promote the growth of the Micro-

and Nanotechnology industry in the UK. One aim of this project was to give fabless companies the chance to develop prototypes using the expertise and state-of-the-art equipment that Qudos provides. A high level of manufacturing investment is required to bring a product to market, so it is essential that the prototyping is done thoroughly and in a cost-effective manner. A further aim of the NPF was the development of new products and processes which would serve the micro and nanotechnology industry, such as fine-line processes, grey-scale masks and nanoimprint masters. Arun Magon, Technical Director at Qudos Technology, said, “Whilst the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) funding for the NPF project comes to an end this year, we feel that it has been a great success, and that the Micro and Nanotechnology industry will continue to benefit from its services and the processes that have been discovered and developed as a result for years to come.” Qudos is currently partnering a TSB funded project designed around the need to produce a quantum leap forward in embedded passive component

design and fabrication. Partnering with a number of leading UK companies, including TWI as project leaders, Plessey Semiconductors as industrial partners and Zarlink Semiconductors as initial end-users, the project will deliver significant improvements in packing density, performance and accuracy of passive components in SystemIn-Package applications. Another project involving Qudos, and a wider consortium led by Qinetiq and BCF Ultra Electronics, has taken concept through to development, for a new system that can monitor aircraft wiring for various parameters such as temperature, electrical current, humidity and stress whilst in-flight. Currently this is a ground based maintenance task and nanotechnology will significantly improve aircraft efficiency and safety. Nanotechnology is truly an international industry and Qudos have worked with companies from around the world; in order to reach out to both UK and internationally based companies, Qudos is launching a new company website. www.qudostechnology.co.uk

GnoSys Science and Technology working together

GnoSys UK is a multidisciplinary science and technology company specializing in the power sector. Our ISO9001 scope “Consultancy in Sustainable Power and Polymeric Materials” encompasses research support, technical services, innovative materials and product and software development. Activities cover development of conventional and new polymers, composites, coatings and electrical insulation materials, including nanomaterials and nanocomposites. Since we are embedded in the University of Surrey campus we have good access to a wide range of cutting-edge analytical techniques and materials characterisation facilities.

HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS? We aim to understand properties and mechanisms such as: n Electrical breakdown and voltage endurance n Dielectric response – linear and non-linear n Charge transport and space charge behaviour n Thermal conduction and phonon behaviour n Thermal and mechanical property enhancement n Decoupling of physical properties

Although we are very experienced in research and development for the power sector, our applications are not all confined to power - the experiences we gain are put to good use in such diverse areas as telecommunications, medical device technologies, materials condition assessment and recycling technologies.

This understanding allows us to fine-tune dielectric material properties to insulation requirements.

NANOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH We have developed a number of nanocomposite thermoplastic and thermoset based materials and have experience with many of the nanoscience techniques required to study and characterise them. This research combines recent advances in nanoparticle production and nanocomposites technology with traditional and novel resin systems to create materials with enhanced electrical insulating, thermal and mechanical properties. The development and use of polymeric nanocomposites and nanodielectrics promises to benefit current applications, with only minor changes to manufacturing processes, as well as extending the use of novel composites in new areas. OUR WORK WITH THE POWER SECTOR In the generation, distribution and transmission sectors, we foster innovation by: n Materials specification and trialling n Using quantitative structure-property relationships n Early-stage application proofing, de-risking and deployment. This approach applies to both conventional and nanocomposite system development. We have a strong track record in collaborative patent applications for commercial exploitation and in working with large multinational and smaller companies. BENEFITS OF NANOTECHNOLOGY IN THE POWER SECTOR General benefits of using nanotechnology include: greater design freedom, smaller equipment footprint, reduction in material use, higher reliability, improved power density, long-term improvement of energy efficiency and improved service life.

MATERIALS RESEARCH We have extended our experience in materials research and characterisation to the nanotechnology field. Our research in this area includes: n Design and production of nanoparticles and surfaces using novel

nanochemistries Nanoparticle dispersion control and self-assembly Understanding and engineering the interface and the role of impurities Discrete multiphase versus molecular composites Smart and electro-responsive materials Materials self repair and self reporting

n n n n n

This is then applied to: n Translating research into engineering design n System and performance modelling n Materials engineering

TECHNIQUES USED IN OUR RESEARCH We use a wide variety of spectroscopic and microscopic techniques (e.g. Micro-Raman, FT-IR, TEM, SEM, AFM), as well as wide ranging physical and electrical property measurements. FROM NOW TO THE FUTURE It is possible to engineer nanodielectrics with enhancements in physical properties which are related to both the nanophase and the matrix, such as improving the electrical strength of the base polymer. Voltage endurance and surface discharge resistance can be significantly higher than that of the base polymer. Nanodielectrics offer the prospect of engineering the material’s performance envelope for multi-stress environments that exceed the capability of conventional micro-filled composites in power applications.

In power generation: higher power density and voltage endurance, increased thermal rating, higher thermal conductivity, enhanced multistress performance and lower physical footprint for same power.

We are constantly developing a range of process methods and tools that allow for migrating small scale production and manufacture to the commercial scale necessary for the power engineering sector.

For power transmission and distribution: improved electrical insulation, mechanical stability, thermal management and corona erosion resistance. Other benefits include higher current and voltage ratings, higher thermal rating, increased Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) capability, increased electric strength and voltage endurance and reduction of power losses.

GnoSys UK Ltd. University of Surrey, Guildford Surrey, GU2 7XH

In power electronics: higher power density, higher device operating voltages, higher thermal rating and high permittivity dielectrics. 54 success through nanomaterials

Medical Biotech Led by EPSRC initiated a series of Grand Challenges in Nanotechnology

In 2007 the Research Councils, led by EPSRC initiated a series of Grand Challenges in Nanotechnology to take Nanoscience from Engineering to Application. From the outset, each Grand Challenge project was required to be an integrated, interdisciplinary effort, encompassing basic and applied research intended to move the technology towards deployment. The first research projects on Solar Energy started in 2008, the second on Healthcare in 2009 and the third, on Carbon Capture and Utilisation starts this year. There was consultation with the scientific and stakeholder community on each occasion to define the topics within each call and this has resulted in some very exciting projects, many involving more than one research centre and with the key objective of producing results that can be translated into practice and commercialization. The ÂŁ16.5M in nano for healthcare focuses on developing new techniques for screening and treating major public health issues such as cancer, stroke, AIDS, influenza, MRSA and dementia. There is an emphasis on using nanotechnology to develop healthcare solutions for the future, particularly through working in partnership with business and end users towards developing cheaper, more effective treatments, according to public need. The Challenge was developed in close consultation with members of the public and took account of their aspirations and concerns relating to potential nanotechnology applications for healthcare. The UK has great strengths in biomedicine and the global market in healthcare is of both a high monetary and societal value. It is becoming clear that nanotechnology might provide solutions for improved diagnosis and medical imaging, and drug delivery, offering the possibility of lower doses of medicine targeted at the places in the body where they are most needed.

Engineering virus-like nanoparticles for targeting the central nervous system (Sheffield University). This project uses polymer nanotechnology to engineer biocompatible and nanometer-sized particles that are able to pass through different extracellular barriers to deliver therapeutic agents.

n Nanoparticles for the targeted delivery of therapeutic agents to the brain

for the treatment of dementias (UCL). By formulating nanoparticles in the size range of 65-100nm with a neutral or negative surface charge and then delivering to the brain, this project hopes to achieve a widespread dispersion for therapeutic delivery. Agents such as genes, siRNA and beta amyloid-degrading enzymes may be delivered.

n Non-Attrition Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy nanoparticles for HIV/

AIDS drug delivery (Liverpool University) This project will also be assessing novel high throughput assays that can be used for rapid material evaluation and be useful in the field of nanotoxicology. Technologies for the treatment of brain diseases (London School of Pharmacy) This project will identify the mechanism by which nanoparticles cross the blood-brain barrier and engineer nanoparticles to achieve this and deliver therapeutic agents.

These projects will undergo a Stage Gate process and the most promising will be awarded further funding to take the work on to the development stage, matched with additional funding from sources outside of the Research Councils. This will ensure that there is a high degree of Research Council support to these projects during the critical early stages.

n Multi-marker nanosensors for HIV (UCL). This is an ambitious project

to engineer and commercialise the next generation of multi-marker smart chips to diagnose rapidly, stage and monitor HIV in resource limited environments. 56 success through nanomaterials

Science Parks Nanotechnology: The Science Park Perspective

INNOVATION AND NANOTECHNOLOGY In 2006 UKSPA Business Affiliates Marks & Clerk – a leading firm of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys - looked at the importance of technology across many areas of scientific development in their “Nanotechnology Report” and clearly illustrated that the levels of innovation and activity in nanotechnology had risen exponentially in the last five years. The report pointed to the dominance (measured by filing patents and granting patents) of the United States in: n Nanotechnology n Nanoelectrics and n Nanoenergy. Since then, many UK Science Parks - and the companies located there - have built upon the commercially applicable innovations that have emerged from the academic sector and a look at just a sample of activity that is being undertaken throughout the UK illustrates the exciting innovations that are being developed. Many UK Science Parks - and the companies located there - are now building upon the commercially applicable innovations that have emerged from the academic sector to and a look at just a sample of activity that is being undertaken throughout the UK illustrates the exciting innovations that are being developed within the sector FOCUS ON BEGBROKE SCIENCE PARK Dr. Christiane Norenberg, Nanotechnology HEIF Manager at the Oxford University Begbroke Science Park takes a look at some of the nanotechnology activities at the Science Park. The University of Oxford is a long-established and widely recognised centre for nanotechnology research, with a range of projects focusing on nanomaterials, particles, fibres, devices and films 60 success through nanomaterials

and arrays. A significant proportion of this research, particularly that carried out in collaboration with the University’s spin-out companies and other industrial partners, is located at the Begbroke Science Park.

70 scientists before moving to larger premises at the Oxford Science Park in 2009. The company is developing a unique nanopore platform for the detection of biomolecules and sequencing of DNA.

Begbroke Science Park is a pioneering development for Oxford University. It offers a unique environment where world-class scientists work alongside entrepreneurs and colleagues from industry to translate cutting-edge research into commercial opportunities.

Oxford Advanced Surfaces (OAS) and its subsidiary Oxford Energy Technologies (OET), both of which are based at Begbroke, are also using nanotechnology, but in different ways. OAS’s proprietary highly reactive chemistry, ONTO® is used to modify the surfaces of materials to improve their performance in applications as diverse as adhesives, adhesion primers, agrochemicals, semiconductors and composite materials. OET is focussed on the photovoltaic sector and is making a novel anti-reflection coating for application in solar cells using nano-particulate technology. A Technology Strategy Board and company sponsored Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) between OAS and Dr Andrew Watt of the University of Oxford on ‘Thin film structures for low-cost solar cells’ is a good example of the close collaboration between companies and University research in nanotechnology at the Begbroke Science Park.

Over the last ten years, a number of nanotechnology companies have started and grown on the park. One of the first was Oxonica, which was founded in 1999 by the present Academic Director of the Begbroke Science Park and Strategic Advisor to RCUK on Nanotechnology, Professor Peter Dobson. It produced nanoparticles for a variety of industrial and consumer applications. For example, Optisol branded products for use in sunscreens are based on doped titania nanoparticles and Envirox, a cerium oxide nanoparticle based product, is added to diesel fuel to reduce carbon particulate emission and improve engine performance. This latter business has now been taken over by another company, Energenics, which continues to be based at the Begbroke Science Park. Oxford Gene Technology, which is now acknowledged to be one of the most successful gene sequencing licensing companies in the world, also established itself at Begbroke in 1999 and continues to base its operations at the site. There are other, more recent examples. Oxford Nanopore Technologies, which was spun out from the University using technology developed by Professor Hagan Bayley started at the Begbroke Science Park in 2005 and grew to employ around

A key to the successful work of research based companies and University research groups at Begbroke Science Park is the availability of the state-of-the-art nanomaterials characterisation services of BegbrokeNano. This commercial service is a branded element of the previously established Oxford Materials Characterisation Service (OMCS) and is operated by Oxford University’s Department of Materials. It is also a UK National Centre for materials characterisation, being part of the UK Technology Strategy Board Open Access Micro-Nano Technology Facilities Network; an infrastructure initiative aimed at accelerating the commercialisation of nano enabled products. High Tech start ups often need support to

develop products and processes in areas which are not their core business. By working with BegbrokeNano a company can gain access in a flexible manner to some of the equipment and associated expertise which it may need to help it get its products to market promptly. Companies and researchers at Begbroke Science Park have also access to an extensive Nanotechnology Training Programme as part of the knowledge transfer activities initiated by the Directorate of the Begbroke Science Park. With companies beginning to make innovative uses of the properties of nano-scale materials, it is vital to create opportunities for professional development in the science and characterisation techniques that help us to understand the novel behaviour of nano-scale processes and structures. In collaboration with the University’s Department for Continuing Education a portfolio of accredited and non-accredited nanotechnology training courses is offererd, including an annual summer school in emerging areas such as nanomedicine. FOCUS ON NANOTECTURE: UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON SCIENCE PARK Bill Campbell of Nanotecture, located at the University of Southampton Science Park, describes how his company maintains strong links with the University itself. The University based founders and scientists engaged in the original research act as independent scientific and technology advisors to Nanotecture, helping the company to remain at the forefront of its field. At the heart of Nanotecture’s success lies the company’s combined expertise in electrochemistry and nanotechnology which supports a wealth of applications in the storage and optimisation of electrical energy – an issue of crucial importance

to many industries, particularly those engaged in renewable power generation and the design of energy-efficient vehicles and portable electronic devices. Nanotecture specialises in the production of nanoporous materials and the development of highly efficient electrical storage devices based on those materials. The company’s proprietary material production process enables the precise engineering of nano-scale architectures within materials. These nanoporous materials are characterised by very high surface areas, typically hundreds of times the area of the equivalent non-porous materials. Electrodes and electrical storage devices constructed of nanoporous material respond at high speed and deliver very high power density. The technology, which is based on original science using liquid crystal templating at the University of Southampton, exploits the inherent behaviour of surfactants in solution to align themselves in highly regular geometric structures resembling a honeycomb. With their defined, ordered porosity, these liquid crystal honeycomb structures act as an ideal temporary framework for the alignment and deposition of materials. FOCUS ON NORWICH RESEARCH PARK (NRP) NANOTECHNOLOGY Mathew Hills of NRP describes work at the Research Park which has a number of groups working on nanotechnology for a variety of application sectors. The main cluster is in the School of Chemistry at the University of East Anglia. The labs involved are developing nanomaterials for energy generation and storage, materials for robust and sensitive chemical sensors and quantum dots for bio-imaging, medical treatments and forensic applications.

There is a strong cluster of groups based at the University of East Anglia and the Institute of Food Research developing nano-scale imaging technologies associated with thermal, spectroscopic and other methods to both visualise and measure physico-chemical properties of nano-scale structures in particular biological materials, foods and drug formulations. Researchers at the John Innes Centre are investigating the opportunities for using plant viruses as nanobuilding blocks/nanoscaffolds/ nanotemplates for nanoelectronics, biosensors, and drug delivery devices. High-spec laboratory and office accommodation is available in the Norwich Bio-Incubator, a 20,000 sq ft purpose-built facility with well appointed laboratories attached office accommodation, and a range of communal facilities including meeting rooms and support laboratory. In addition, over 30 new high quality office and laboratory units are being constructed and fitted out in a totally refurbished and customised 43,000 sq ft three storey building which opens in July 2010. The new facility will attract growing businesses from all over the world involved in science, scientific research and innovation. These new offices and laboratories provide the opportunity to expand the number of companies setting up at or moving to the Norwich Research Park and provide follow-on space for existing bio-tech and other science related companies in Norfolk that need to expand. This new facility is scheduled to be open by July 2010. For more information Kingdom Science Park www.ukspa.org.uk

Intellectual Property Office Intellectual Property Office is an operating name of the Patent Office

A study of UK nanotech patents by the Informatics team at the Intellectual Property Office has identified promising areas for investment, writes Mark Lewney In 1960, just a year after having offered a $1000 prize to the first person to construct an electric motor which could fit inside a cube with sides measuring 1/64th of an inch, Richard Feynman was confronted by a man holding a large box. The Nobel Prize winner, preparing to dismiss the man as yet another crank, watched as he opened the box and took out a microscope. “Uh oh” said Feynman. If the man whom TIME® magazine named the smartest on the planet could be caught unawares by the pace of change in nanotechnology, it is clear that precise information regarding the current state of play in the field is essential if one does not wish to leave oneself similarly exposed.

A new service provided by the Intellectual Property Office offers such valuable analysis for any emerging technology, with nanotechnology representing just one recent example. “Patents contain a huge amount of applied technical knowledge that cannot be found elsewhere” says Ben Buchanan, co-compiler of the UK Innovation Nanotechnology Patent Landscape Analysis, which set out to identify the UK’s strengths and weaknesses across the nanotech landscape by analysing all such patents having a UK priority, applicant or inventor. “The IPO Patent Informatics Team use that unique data to reveal sectoral trends, whitespace, competitor intelligence and emergent technology in line with

your business or investment strategy. It can also point research groups in the direction of proven, effective solutions allowing them to avoid the duplication of work which results in vast sums of money being wasted each year.” The report highlights the UK’s strength in bionanotechnology, with commercial organisations such as Tioxide and the Cancer Research Campaign leading the way in wellestablished medical and cosmetic applications, while university patents were spread far more broadly reflecting vibrant ongoing research in nanostructures and electrical applications such as light guides and semiconductors. It also identified an area in which the UK appears to be underrepresented – nanotoxicity – interest in which peaked in 2005 following fears raised in the press1 by the Prince of Wales regarding the possibility of a thalidomide-style disaster caused by nanotechnology, which may ironically have incentivised research rather than curtailing it. Breaking the dataset of more than six thousand patents down by subject matter over time, as in figure 1, yields more detailed insight. However, it is important to correct one likely misinterpretation at the outset: the graphs tail off towards the present not due to zero patent applications currently being received, but because of the delays in processing and publishing them. Nevertheless, it is clear that some nanotech applications, especially the medical and cosmetic applications shown in the first four graphs, have a longer history of activity and may now be in true decline following peaks in the 1990s or early 2000s. On the other hand, the more physics and electronicsbased applications in the lower graphs show a more recent emergence such that the apparent decline might solely be explained by processing delays, when in fact their activity may still be vigorous, even growing. Especially promising is the middle turquoise plot for light guides, which shows an upturn at the present even despite such delays, possibly indicating the start of a period of growth, thanks in part to Glasgow University’s strong interest in this area.

“Menace in the minutiae” – HRH the Prince of Wales, Comment in the Independent on Sunday, 11th July 2004, available from http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/ commentators/hrh-the-prince-of-wales-menace-in-theminutiae-552733.html

Breaking the dataset down by type of applicant demonstrates this promising trend more starkly, as shown in figure 2. Despite considerable activity from the commercial organisation sector, university assignees have proliferated since the late 1990s indicating that there is a great deal of scope for further fundamental research, and

that this is a developing technology rather than a mature one. The universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Glasgow and Imperial College have been particularly active in increasing the share of nanotech patents assigned to universities, and all show significant activity in widely disparate fields of nanoscience, from nanometrology (measurement) to nanomaterials and electronics. This diversity underlines that it is the nature of universities to pursue early science research and explore underrepresented technology sectors, as opposed the general commercial model of prolific exploitation and intense patenting to defend much narrower and more specific markets and products. Informatic study of even a single patent can provide a useful gauge of its importance. If a document is cited regularly during the examination process for later patent applications, it clearly discloses important or fundamental subject matter and so the number of such “forward citations” is indicative of a patent’s quality or worth. The most cited nanotech document was US 2003/0089899, relating to “Nanoscale wires and related devices” (i.e. sub-microelectronic circuitry), which yielded an impressive 103 forward citations and was developed in conjunction with Southampton University by UK based inventor David C Smith. The informatics report itself was commissioned by the Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network, sponsored by the Technology Strategy Board, who as a result are now in a position to encourage investment in the areas and players

identified as having high potential and focus on the UK’s key strengths in nanotechnology, just as nuclear and aerospace technologies have been acknowledged as cornerstones of the UK economy in the past. A final tale of Richard Feynman relates how, at Los Alamos in the 1940s, an army captain in charge of IP asked Feynman if there were any patentable applications for the new nuclear reactor technology. “Nothin’ to it!” he said, rattling off examples such as submarine propulsion, rocket-propelled aeroplanes and electrical power plants, which he promptly forgot about. Three months later, Feynman was asked to sign these patents over to the government for the sum of a dollar. “Where’s my dollar?” he asked. “That’s just a formality,” replied the captain. “We haven’t got any funds set up to give a dollar.” Feynman was adamant that he was not about to give away the worldwide monopoly on nuclear power stations for nothing. “I want my dollar!” The IPO Patent Informatics Team delivers technology intelligence which allows customers to assess the worth of a patent accurately and identify areas of technology with high potential. It is expected that such well-informed investments will yield significantly greater returns than that received by Richard Feynman. www.ipo.gov.uk

International Succeed in emerging markets

There is a wealth of opportunity for British businesses in emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China. While many companies have seen domestic demand drastically shrink during the past year, emerging markets are well placed to fill gaps and drive future expansion. While the economic problems of the past year have been felt globally, emerging economies are still growing. China in particular still offers great opportunities and UK businesses can benefit from the Chinese Government’s massive and unprecedented domestic fiscal stimulus package.

Through matchmaking services, the UK Chamber Network can put you in touch with reliable and credible business contacts as well as help arrange market visits and point you in the right direction once you are out there.

The whole area of exporting however does expose businesses to new risks. There are a range of issues that can trip businesses up such as local legislation, cultural differences, export administration or competition from other markets. These must be thoroughly explored and understood before executing an export strategy into any market.

MAKE EXPORT ADMINISTRATION WORK FOR YOU Once you have implemented your export strategy, the next step in the journey is successfully shipping your goods to your chosen destination.

However there is help and support available and by following simple key steps businesses can make the difference between success and failure. DO YOUR RESEARCH AND PLANNING Taking a planned approach to exporting can pay dividends. By making export sales a part of your business strategy, you can set realistic goals for your business and develop exports over a five year period. Following and sticking to a plan is key. Markets should also be selected wisely. Choose the markets yourself and that are right for your business. Do not have the markets choose you. Agents and distributors that approach your company offering to represent you are acting in their own best interests to expand their businesses not yours! Potential export markets can be plotted on a two dimensional grid allowing you to select those most appropriate to grow your business. You should plan for a presence in a market not just to find one or two customers. Think long term. In addition, when developing a market entry strategy think about what you are going to have to change in order to be successful in the new market – adapt the product, set a pricing strategy, choose a route to market, position yourself competitively for instance. By being clear about the information you need to find out in order to make these decisions will help focus your search. Leave no stone unturned in your pursuit of knowledge about the market, visit the critical web links listed on the British Chambers of Commerce’s website (www.britishchambers.org.uk) and make sure you speak to people in the know. BUILD TRUSTED INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS When researching a chosen market or seeking business opportunities in a selected market such as China, organising a visit can be very beneficial. Market visits allow you to find out about your product, research purchasing behaviour, select suppliers, source partners and listen to the experiences of existing suppliers. Arranging meetings with a broad cross section of players in the marketplace is an ideal way to form relationships and to discover the way business is done in your chosen country – pay particular attention to local culture and how you communicate, even if you are liaising with contacts who speak fluent English. Knowing who to trust and how to make initial contact with local businesses however can be daunting. There are many Government bodies and support organisations that can help you overcome these hurdles. For instance, the British Chambers of Commerce is part of a trusted global network of International and Bilateral Chambers of Commerce who provide professional advice and guidance to SME businesses across the world.

When you return from your market visit it is also important to remain strategic. You should analyse your findings at leisure when you are back in the UK and not whilst you are out there; tempting though it might be, important decisions about the market should not be made until you get home to ensure you are objective.

It’s all too easy for overseas orders to turn sour if you don’t know the market you are shipping to. Every opportunity must be properly assessed beforehand during your research, looking at everything from shipping costs to local regulations, to ensure that a profit can be made and any longer term potential for your business is identified. Equally, it’s very important to know about export certification. What should be a straightforward process can be very time demanding and costly if not completed accurately; the accurate completion and authentication of export documentation is vital to ensure your goods are delivered on time and payment is received quickly.

For instance, a tiny error on your export documentation can be costly. A discrepancy, as small as a missing space or a comma, can render a document invalid resulting in fines, undelivered shipments and disgruntled customers. It’s also important to check your goods satisfy the rules of the country of origin so that your client can claim preferential duty. Likewise, check whether your product needs an export licence and/ or a pre shipment inspection report at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) website. Recognising the errors and knowing the cost incurred of doing so can save your business valuable time and money. Familiarising yourself with the common errors that occur in your business can minimise this risk. Triple check documents before they are sent for authorisation and allow sufficient time for shipments to be cleared before the Letters of Credit expire. Being strict with your export administration will pay off and ensure you do not undo the valuable groundwork achieved through your research and planning. You’ll build a reputation based on efficiency, price and high levels of customer satisfaction, and minimise any likelihood of frustration for both the buyer and seller.

Match made in Heaven The UK Advanced Engineering sector comprises many things, from Earth (the automotive sector) to Heaven (the space and aerospace sectors) and much else besides. Actually, UK Advanced Engineering is more than just a collection of high-tech business sectors (heavenly and otherwise). For the UK, it is more like a way of approaching physical challenges, a way of looking at things; a philosophy, almost. That makes it sound a bit more ‘elevated’ than it really is though. The UK approach to advanced engineering is above all pragmatic. Our companies are practical and broad-minded, not tied to standard engineering ‘products’ and much more able than most to design inventive, tailored solutions for particular and, perhaps, very unusual or extreme problems (such as the world’s pressing need to convert to a low-carbon economy). These bespoke solutions also bring with them a total commitment to safety, reliability and quality. Being broad-minded, the UK Advanced Engineering sector is very open to using the latest developments in micro and nanotechnology and - more than that - it is also responsible for bringing about many of those developments. Nanotechnology is very much a part of the UK Advanced Engineering package. So how do we define ‘advanced engineering’? UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) takes the view that Advanced Engineering companies are involved in the development of products, processes or services that employ research and/or continuous development capability. This means that they develop or use intellectual property (whether formally or informally) in areas of CAPABILITY such as: n Design engineering and product development n Advanced materials (including, for example, composites and nanotechnology) n Advanced manufacturing and process intensification These capabilities are applied by businesses across a range of END-USER SECTORS such as: n Aerospace/Space n Automotive industries, including motorsport, construction and mining equipment n Energy (including oil and gas, nuclear and renewable energy) n Marine n Printed electronics Advanced Engineering recognises that technology capabilities such as design engineering and product development, advanced materials and advanced manufacturing are cross-cutting and have application in an extensive range of sectors. Many of these sectors use nanomaterials, nanotools, and nanointermediates to create a range of nano-enabled end products. The global market for nanotechnology (in its broadest sense, 72 success through nanomaterials

including all nano-enabled products) is currently believed to be worth as much as £9 billion and that could double by 2013. Nanotechnology is rapidly taking on economic and industrial significance of the same order that microelectronics has acquired in the past few decades. UK excellence in generating and applying nanotechnology is based in both our business and academic bases. There are more than 600 micro and nanotechnology companies in the UK along with more than 1500 research scientists working on the development of nanotechnology. In the UK, business and academia work together very closely and productively in the nanotechnology field, mainly through individual research projects, many of which also benefit from government funding through the Technology Strategy Board, or the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Some of the world’s most prestigious nanotechnology research centres are in the UK. For example the Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Nanotechnology, a collaborative project between Cambridge University, Bristol University and University College London. Advanced research is also going on at the Nanotechnology Research Institute of the University of Ulster, which is developing a thin-film material characterisation and fabrication engineering facility; and the University of Cranfield, Department of Materials, which has a specialism in prototyping microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). MEMS are also a specialism of one of the UK’s leading aerospace companies, BAE Systems. The Advanced Technology Centre at Filton, near Bristol, carries out R&D for BAE and on a commercial basis for other companies. The Centre includes a Micro and Nanotechnology Group and within that a MEMS Devices Group, which has been developing MEMS technology for almost 30 years. Among the world-class products turned out by the MEMS Devices Group is the Silicon Gyro, which has been successfully transferred to the automotive industry. The applications of nanotechnology in Advanced Engineering are numerous and increasing. At present they include: n Aerospace/Space: high temperature wear

resistant coatings for moving parts like turbine blades, utilising specialised nanostructured materials; propellants, using metal nanoparticles; and nanoceramic armour systems. In future, applications are expected to include high strength, low weight composites; low energy electronic displays; nanomaterial-based air filters; and highly miniaturized, low-cost satellites. n Automotive:

addition of carbon-black nanoparticles to tyre rubber as a strengthening agent; MEMS-based sensors in airbags. Expected

future applications include; nanomaterial-based catalytic convertors, fuel cells and powertrains, as well as lighter, stronger vehicle parts. n Manufacturing:

advanced manufacturing makes increasing use of sophisticated tools and software to manipulate matter on the nanoscale, to manufacture basic nanomaterials and through the value chain to nano-enabled products in all sorts of sectors, including pharmaceuticals, electronics, telecommunications, construction, agriculture, food, cosmetics, textiles, printing and packaging. n Energy: nanotechnology already has many

applications in the energy field, with the promise of many more to come. Current applications include nanocatalysts, to refine heavy oils into fuel; fuel additives, lubricants, and detergents; photovoltaics, utilising printed electronics; lightweight parts and improved coatings for wind turbines. UK companies and academic institutions are making valuable contributions in all these areas through their extensive capability in nanotechnology. These capabilities include, n Nanomaterials - the UK produces: oxides,

carbides, nitrides, metals and layered or doped materials. Also nanoparticles, nanopowders, carbon multi-wall nanotubes, nanowire and quantum dots, nanopolymers n Nanointermediates - MEMS, electronic and opto-electronic devices and circuits, RF devices and circuits, microfluidic devices n Nanotools - UK business developing and manufacturing tools such as surface and particle analysis and molecular manipulation n Nano-enabled products - many leading micro/ nanotechnology users are based in the UK particularly in aerospace, pharmaceuticals/ medical devices and semi-conductor devices These are impressive capabilities in themselves, but the UK Advanced Engineering sector adds yet more value by its imaginative application of nanotechnology - and many other specialist technologies and disciplines. UK business is at the leading edge of Advanced Engineering, from the smart delivery of medicines in the inner space of the human body to the exploration of the vast and remote frontier of outer space.

Do you know the real size of your nano particles?

Differential centrifugal sedimentation (DCS) is a novel and innovative, yet simple particle sizing technique, which has become ‘reborn’ in recent years. Previous limitations and difficulties with the technique of sedimentation have been overcome using recent advances in technology, and some smart thinking regards instrumentation and disc design. DCS is now a powerful tool in measuring nano particle size distributions down to around 2nm. With the unique ability to resolve very close multi-modal particle distributions, and to distinguish extremely small shifts and changes in particle size, DCS is once more gaining in popularity. The practical range of the technique is from around 2nm to 80 micron (exact range dependent on density), however the real benefits over and above more traditional so-called nano particle sizing techniques are generally noticed below 300nm. These days, DCS is highly accurate, reproducible, fast, very simple to use, can measure up to 40 samples on the same ‘run’, does ‘speed ramping’ for measurement of broad distributions, and can even measure ‘buoyant’ or ‘neutral density’ particles, i.e. particles having a lower density to the medium in which they are dispersed.

Surrey NanoSystems Unique nanomaterials development platforms

NanoGrowth-Catalyst® - A breakthrough in nanomaterials development A unique nanomaterials research platform offering users supreme flexibility, capability, reliability and low cost of ownership while occupying the minimum clean room floor space. Nine of the world’s leading nanomaterials development technologies in a 1m x 2m cleanroom compatible package... The NanoGrowth Catalyst offers users the ability to develop process for a wide range of nanomaterials such as nanoparticles and nanoclusters, carbon nanotubes, nanowires and graphene, using: n Sputtering including co-deposition n Sputter etch and Ashing n Nanoparticle deposition n PECVD DC/RF nanomaterial growth n LP/HP CVD nanomaterial growth n Solid/liquid phase catalyst/precursor delivery n Thermal annealing n Rapid Thermal Growth (RTG) n RTP activation Full user control of every stage of the nanomaterial/ structure formation process: diffusion barrier formation, catalyst creation by sputter or nanoparticle deposition, catalyst or material activation, growth of nanowires and nanotubes to post growth metallization, all without breaking vacuum, at the touch of a button. CONSISTENT RESULTS Better quality materials result from minimising contamination and oxidation. The NanoGrowth Catalyst is the only nanomaterials development system that is capable of maintaining the substrate under vacuum throughout the nanomaterial or nanostructure growth process. As widely recognised, many nanomaterial catalysts exhibit rapid exothermic or nonrepeatable reactions on exposure to atmospheric gases (e.g. pyrophoric nano Iron). Rapid changes in catalyst state and subsequent growth inconsistencies are removed by maintaining the substrate under vacuum, allowing a wider range of nanoparticles or nanoclusters to be explored under tight control. CONDITIONS FOR SUCCESS Reducing the chances for contamination leads to more successful and consistent experimentation. Degassing substrates by a broad band noncontact IR source drives off surface-bound water vapour, offering superior adhesion at the catalyst interface. The RTG source can rapidly condition the catalysed substrate, minimising the effects of particle agglomeration (that can occur with slower substrate heating methods), thus

improving nucleation site density. In operation the system can run down to 5 x 10-6 mTorr further reducing the chances of spurious results through contamination. MULTIPLE CATALYST CHOICES Enabling multiple approaches to catalysis, the system can sputter metallic catalysts (incorporating two magnetrons for codeposition of complex alloyed material catalysts or barriers), and has the option of a Nanocluster source for nanoparticle and cluster deposition. Complex catalysts can be created, as can high surface area materials. The potential exists to further functionalise nanofilaments and tubes. The optional Nanocluster source can massselect nanoparticles and accelerate them, with a wafer bias, to the surface of the substrate at high or low energies allowing faceting and other nanoscale effects. BETTER QUALITY FILMS- FASTER Higher throughput and better films result from a cold wall solution. With shorter times to process temperature than hot wall technology, the hot chuck in the system can be ramped at a controlled rate, and can run at a set temperature, with hot substrate transfer allowing faster times between runs. Shower head gas delivery offers excellent uniformity of reactants across the substrate surface, leading to much more consistent research results.

NANOSOFT® - SOFTWARE DESIGNED FOR EASE OF USE Allowing users to focus on the business of research, the software offers easy recipe creation, accurate repeatable control and single button runs, as well as tracking and archiving of all system/process parameters for later reference and analysis.

Nano Fabrication by Professor Douglas Paul

The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre was built in 2005 bringing together all the nanofabrication tools in the University of Glasgow and is an internationally leading centre in nanofabrication and nanoscale systems.

The Centre houses over ÂŁ20M of nanofabrication and nano-characterisation equipment which is run and maintained in a pseudo-industrial operation by 18 technicians and 5 PhD level research technologists. The University of Glasgow has 30 years of experience of nanofabrication and this now allows patterns, devices and systems all to be fabricated or built with length scales from a few atoms across (about a nanometre) up to many 10s of centimetres. Glasgow University presently holds the world record for the smallest metal pattern produced by electron beam lithography at 3 nm, the world record for the best layer to layer alignment accuracy (this is 0.6 nm which is 2 silicon atoms and is over 15 times better than anyone else internationally), the fastest mode locked laser at 2.1 THz, the lowest loss silicon waveguides at telecomms wavelengths and up until 2 years ago we held the world record for the faster transistor. Present research is trying to produce 22 nm gate-length high electron mobility transistors to recover this world record. 76 success through nanomaterials

The Centre has ÂŁ53M of active research grants and industrial contracts. We collaborate and work with over 30 Scottish, UK and International companies as well as using a University of Glasgow spin-out company, Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd., to provide industrial access to the facilities at commercial rates. Kelvin Nanotechnology provide industrial access to the facility for a further 20 companies. The companies range from local SMEs up to large multinationals. The research in the centre ranges from fundamental through applied to commercial but all research fields are strongly aimed at particular applications areas including energy (sustainable generation and reducing energy consumption), health (e-Health monitoring and lab-on-a-chip), security (IED and CBRNE detection), defence, communications and sensors. Examples include the nanoscale engineering of semiconductors to produce efficient thermoelectric generators which turn heat into electricity, the use of photonic

bandgap patterns of nanometre scale holes in white LEDs to improve the brightness and energy efficiency for domestic lighting along with nanometre quantum dots being used in solar cells to double the efficiency of generating electricity. For medical applications wireless biosensors have been developed which can be placing inside a human body to monitor and detect cancers while wirelessly communicate the detected information to computers outside the human. Fundamental research areas include building molecular memories into silicon technology for improved mobile phone, digital camera or portable music player memories along with solar harvesting to turn carbon dioxide into methanol using the energy from the sun. The Centre also has a number of spin-out companies which cover applications in photovoltaic solar cell electricity generation, semiconductor device modelling and telecommunications. www.jwnc.gla.ac.uk

FABRICATION & TOOLS NanoPerspective™ 77

UK Nanotechnologies Facilities Network

Five years ago there was a ÂŁ50m injection of central government public cash to establish the so-called MicroNanoTechnology network of open access facilities. This was finally done after many of us had lobbied for this over many years. In particular, we saw that, certainly for start-ups, as well as business units in larger companies, the capital and operational costs for micro- and nano-fabrication equipment were, in general, prohibitively too high to consider ownership. Indeed, many business operations would actually only use such equipment episodically. For most wealth creating businesses, micro- and nano-fabrication is just a small part of the story and it made sense to share such fabrication resources.

The finance from central government was augmented by additional monies from regional government, and thus, twenty four facilities were established with focal points to their mission, ranging from wafer bonding, laser micromachining to nano in the creative industries. Another option was to have made the investment in one or two central facilities, as suggested in the 2002 Taylor report, possibly at existing centres of micro- and nanofabrication expertise. Nevertheless, these facilities are now regionally scattered throughout the UK and each was funded with relatively modest finance. Details on the excellent micronanotechnology services offered by many of these facilities can be found within the pages of this booklet, or call barrow@cf.ac.uk for signposting. The advantages of a distributed network of smaller business operations include (i) reaching a larger customer base (ii) functional diversity of provision, and (iii) operational dexterity and rapidity. Equally, there are many disadvantages, but the effectiveness of a distributed network is dependent upon the quality and cohesion of its co-ordination and marketing. This is vital for realising the critical mass of a distributed network and is an urgently required mission for a new team of highly-qualified, practical, hands-on engineers, scientists, designers and artists. The sole mission of these people must be to effectively secure excellent joined-up solutions for customers (perhaps from several centres) and thereby work for the facilities network. It is this that needs to be specifically and significantly improved in order to capitalise upon the welcome, but somewhat fragmented, investments made to date. 78 success through nanomaterials

Further to the above, we need to make significant investments into the one or two major, internationally significant, micro- and nano-fabrication facilities as envisaged earlier to act as a hub for this regionalised and distributed network. This would also provide a much greater focus for significant inward investment as is reflected in the 2010 report of the KTN Mini Innovation and Growth Team. Additionally, we need to see sustained longer-term funding for developments that are mid-term in their technology rediness. Finally, we need to emphasise the timescales required for our new nanocentres to establish a unique selling point and strong reputation in the contract manufacturing space. These requirements perfectly align with the Hermann Huaser report to Lord Mandleson on the need to establish Fraunhofer-like organisations in the UK. Micronanotechnologies are the next industrial revolution, and with the spectacular loss of faith in the financial industries, the UK urgently needs to reinvent itself as a high-end manufacturing nation. Such an aspiration requires very significant and long-term public investment for enabling facilities on which business can thrive.

Advanced Materials Key to product innovation

Around 70% of all product innovation is enabled by developments in materials technology. Couple this with the strong UK capability in product design and the resulting connection is a powerful blend for increased innovation. This is why the support of the Materials Knowledge Transfer Network is so vital to UK industry.

The UK is the home to a number of world class companies whose success depends on their development and use of advanced materials. The UK is also recognised for its world-class understanding of materials and excellent product design capability. Materials technologies underpin manufacturing and contribute to innovation in automotive, aerospace, power generation, construction, security, healthcare, electronics, consumer goods and retail. Examples of advancement in materials technology include the use of advanced composites in aircraft and racing cars and high strength steels and aluminium to reduce weight, reduce emissions and lower fuel bills of high volume cars and mass transport. The UK has developed new ways of designing lighter weight power modules through smart choices of materials. The increasing use of smart materials for healthcare applications and by the fashion industry is proving to be a testimony of the work of the Materials KTN in combining smart materials technology with technical textiles and engaging widely with product designers. The Advanced Materials Strategy considers the technology and application areas in which a focus of industrial collaboration, catalysed by public funding, could accelerate significant returns for the UK within a five to seven year timeframe. Initial areas of short to medium term socio-economic benefits are materials for energy generation, supply and use, sustainable transport, construction, packaging and textiles. Including also, the development of materials for high-value markets such as healthcare, the creative industries, security and defence.

The Materials KTN is also on the look out for emerging technologies, such as improved nanoscale technologies and emerging application areas such as Space, where the sector is becoming a growing success for the UK. CONNECTING WITH DESIGN: SKILLS AND ATTITUDES Innovation goes much further than supporting and strengthening scientific research and development, a fact demonstrated by the activities of the Materials KTN. Through its initiatives the KTN is helping to equip young people with many vital skills and attitudes for innovation, including problem solving, curiosity, interrogation skills and multi-disciplinary teamwork. The KTN has shown, on many occasions, that when multi-disciplinary teams from across materials science, technology, design and the arts tackle a problem together, the solutions they come up with are very different to those that emerge from groups of experts in the same field. Perhaps, with the help of the Materials KTN, the next step-change product such as the iPod, a creation that combined the talents of information technologists, scientists, designers and entertainment industry specialists, is just round the corner. The Materials KTN is committed to building on its successes in connecting UK business and academia and helping to catalyse their efforts to accelerate innovation with materials Dr Robert Quarshie, Director of the Materials KTN, is convinced that the creative use of advanced materials by product designers is the key to innovations in fields ranging from sustainable development to healthcare, defence and Space. www.materialsktn.net

ADVANCED MATERIALS NanoPerspective™ 81

Electronics & Microsystems Printed Electronics presents an innovative departure from the conventional manufacture of electronic devices and may justifiably be considered an area of disruptive technology. Its driving force is the promise of adding versatile electronic functionality by adapting established printing processes to use electronically functional materials as inks and hence offer low-cost alternatives to silicon-based electronics. Printed radio frequency identification tags, printed organic light-emitting diode displays and printed photovoltaic cells are already a reality, and those specific application areas are evolving rapidly. But it is in application areas as yet unforeseen that the interaction of printing and electronics technologies presents the prospect of a new era of electronic creativity, with the potential to produce a diverse range of low-cost, intelligent devices that could infiltrate nearly every aspect of everyday life. The market for printed electronics is at an early stage of consolidation, and there is a realistic expectation that it will expand rapidly during the next decade. Whether or not it can confidently be labelled â&#x20AC;&#x153;the emerging $300 billion printed electronics businessâ&#x20AC;? as some analysts predict, time will tell technology revolutions often begin with more hype than substance and as individual market segments begin to mature, the statistics and forecasts will become more meaningful.

Printed electronics has enormous potential to create new markets, although it needs a back-to-basics marketing approach and an entirely different business model than silicon electronics, but market opportunities could be lost as a consequence of a shortage of imaginative product design and marketing. Any enabling technology needs applications to drive it forward and the scope for novel applications is limitless, provided engineers with a background in conventional interconnection and assembly techniques adopt a different mind-set and think creatively. In the UK, the mission of the Technology Strategy Board is to stimulate technology-enabled innovation, and it has been successful in creating and catalysing a free-thinking environment where, for example, people from outside of the traditional electronics industry: graphics people, branding people, packaging people can interact and explore possibilities and opportunities with printed electronics development engineers - fresh ideas and merging of technologies.

Printed electronics processes use standard, or modified, printing techniques such as screen-printing, offset litho-printing flexo-printing or ink-jet printing. High-throughput conventional printing techniques are ideally suited to mass production, whereas the newer digital printing techniques, particularly noncontact methods such as ink-jet, favour dynamic customisation and the ability to print on unconventional substrates. The innovation lies in the inks that are used to print functional devices. These inks may be conducting, based for example on copper, silver or gold, or semi-conducting polymeric organic materials. By printing a series of different layers in different patterns, with inks of different characteristics, an electronic device can be generated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether it is a thin film transistor, a light-emitting diode, a photovoltaic cell, a sensor, a display, a battery, or whatever. The properties of nanoparticle inks are critically important in the functionalisation of printed electronics: silver, copper or gold conductive inks, polymer dielectric inks, organic conductor and semiconductor inks or formulations based on carbon nanotubes. The development and manufacture of nanoparticle functional inks is a rapidly expanding specialist industry, and constructive collaboration between process developers and materials suppliers is fundamental to the progress of printed electronics technology. Printed electronics poses no great competitive threat to conventional siliconbased electronics in applications demanding absolute processing power. Rather, printed electronics can be viewed as a completely new business capable of existing side-by-side with silicon, and bringing electronic functionality to applications where traditional technology is not a feasible solution - either physically impossible or commercially uneconomic. And essentially it only needs a printing machine, not a silicon foundry, to produce printed electronics. There will clearly be a need for standardisation as printed electronics approach maturity and although IEEE and iNEMI have already published some standards for printed electronics, the technology has such a broad scope that industry standards will be progressively adopted on an application-by-application basis, and fitness for purpose, durability and reliability will remain key factors for other than mainstream applications. 84 success through nanomaterials

The invention of the thermionic valve at the turn of the 20th century began the electronics age. The printed circuit board, the discovery of the transistor, the development of the integrated circuit, all accelerated its growth. Ten years into the 21st century there is a divergence in the electronics industry. On one hand we have the two-billion-transistor silicon microprocessor, and on the other the beginnings of a new age of creativity in printed electronics, limited only by the power of the human imagination.

Renewable Energy Creating a national centre for renewable energy

North East England has a proven track record of energy innovation in the exploitation of fossil fuels and is now leading the world in the development of low carbon generation, helping the UK to meet its own energy targets and secure future supplies.

Investment in offshore wind generating capacity alone, targeted at generating a quarter of the UK’s electricity needs, is forecast to be around £100bn and could create up to 70,000 jobs by 2020. With wave and tidal technologies being developed for utility-scale deployment, the region’s expertise in working in the offshore environment bodes well for future business opportunities. As a key driver of the national agenda, Narec is creating a world-leading technology advancement hub for the offshore renewables industry in North East England, working with global turbine, blade, electrical infrastructure manufacturers, project and device developers on their large turbine, blade and associated equipment development programmes. Our latest proposals to build on existing testing and R&D capabilities have received investment from National Government, Regional Development Agency, One North East and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), and are focused on improving the productivity of new technologies by addressing the reliability of technology, installation methods and O&M challenges.

NOF Energy NOF Energy is the business development organisation for the UK oil, gas, nuclear and offshore wind sectors

The organisation has been working closely with the UK energy sector to promote its interests nationally and around the world for over two decades. This has resulted in a significant growth in member numbers with membership exceeding 340 companies from across the supply chain. The organisation has a presence in the majority of UK regions including large clusters in the energy-focused areas of North East England and Aberdeen, Scotland. The UK supply chain has a vital role in the future of global energy, whether it’s in the established oil and gas market, the resurgent nuclear sector or the emerging renewables industry. “There are considerable skills, products and services that exist in the UK supply chain that can are easily replicable in other areas of the energy sector, most notably from oil and gas into nuclear and offshore wind,” said Joanne Leng, Director Business Development at NOF Energy. “The use of nanotechnology can also be effectively employed across a wide spectrum of the energy sector, which presents considerable opportunities for companies working in this area to become effective members of the industry’s supply chain.” NOF Energy works to promote UK suppliers to the domestic and global energy markets through comprehensive business support services for its members. The organisation has developed a suite of services that are designed to facilitate companies’ entry into these comparative markets. “In our experience of promoting the energy supply chain in markets around the world, international operators and contractors are keen to do business with the UK.”

In recent years, NOF Energy has led over 40 market visits to key energy regions of the globe including Brazil, Libya, USA, South Korea and Norway. NOF Energy also explores emerging markets on behalf of members to discover potential opportunities. Last year, NOF Energy visited the Pernambuco region in Brazil. The organisation met with its newly appointed in-country consultant, based in Rio de Janeiro, who will be working with member companies over the coming months, on an individual basis, to assist them with breaking into this profitable export market. NOF Energy is returning to Brazil later in 2010 to further develop relationships. “Every level of the supply chain understands the importance of looking further afield to win new business,” said Joanne. “NOF Energy works closely with members to provide market intelligence, contacts and introductions that will assist them in building new relationships and ultimately win new work.” In the past five years, NOF Energy has assisted members in securing in excess of £75 million worth of new business and, in 2009 alone, at least £10m worth of new business has been won by members as a result of NOF Energy activities.

“This is due to a strong supply chain of companies, which offer skills, innovation and quality.”

Some of these contract wins have been as a result of newly formed alliances between members who are creating partnership agreements to increase their chances of winning new business.

However, to ensure the supply chain develops its ability to win new contracts in an increasingly competitive global market, it has to utilise the resources available.

Many of these arrangements have been borne out of NOF Energy’s calendar of events, which provide industry insight, through a selection of highlyknowledgeable speakers, but also excellent networking opportunities.

“We work with members to help them secure an increasing share of business as well as grow their network of contacts and industry knowledge,” said Joanne.

Joanne added: “Working together in this way, and by increasing its presence in global markets, the UK supply chain can continue to grow its highly-regarded reputation for engineering excellence and be suppliers of choice for customers around the world.”

NOF Energy’s comprehensive range of events, which include hosting international buyer visits to the UK and themed seminars and workshops, ensure members are kept regularly informed of global opportunities. Through exhibitions and visits to members’ operations in the UK by organisations from across the globe, NOF Energy is helping provide a platform for the expertise, experience and quality of the UK supply chain. “International operators look to the UK for its skills, expertise and innovative products,” said Joanne. In addition, NOF Energy provides advice and guidance for UK companies looking to trade internationally by supporting members’ entry strategies and international marketing programmes. “NOF Energy also organises a range of market visits around the world, which provides the supply chain with the perfect opportunity to showcase their businesses,” she said. 88 success through nanomaterials

Venture and Investment Businesses boosted by launch of new ‘super-fund’

Firms across the North East are at last able to benefit from a new £125 million investment ‘super fund’ that will boost economic growth in the region over the next five years. The much anticipated Finance for Business North East programme an exciting portfolio of six innovative venture capital funds – is up and running and will provide vital access to investment for hundreds of small and medium-sized firms.

At the early stage of the spectrum, the Seed Fund will invest in companies and pre-start enterprises. The Angel Match Fund will also work with the region’s early stage investment community, but with the intention of stimulating business angel activity.

Finance for Business will invest £125 million into a broad spectrum of businesses located in the North East through loans and equity investments designed to drive growth.

The Growth Fund, in contrast, will engage with relatively mature SMEs already generating revenue and looking for growth capital in the region of £180,000. The Growth Plus Fund will also deal with companies at this level, though with a focus on the higher-end of the equity gap,

The programme, which is the first of its kind in England, aims to invest in around 850 businesses by 2014. It will target start-ups, technology and science-based businesses and growing companies across all eligible sectors. The fund’s creation has been made possible by a unique collaboration with the European Investment Bank (EIB), based in Luxemburg, which is contributing £62.5 million to the programme. The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and regional development agency One North East (ONE) have jointly invested a further £62 million. Management of the programme lies in the hands of North East Finance (NEF), which will oversee the new super fund on behalf of its investors and partners. As the holding fund management company, NEF will be responsible for overseeing the successful introduction and future operation of the funds. Andrew Mitchell, chief executive of North East Finance, said: The strategic importance of this funding, which is a significant ‘win’ for the region, should not be underestimated. As the first fund of its kind in the country, it will help to underpin the development of a new generation of high growth SMEs, potentially supporting up to 5,000 new jobs. “The aim is to secure access to investment for growing regional businesses over the next decade and beyond with any returns on investment ploughed back in to the regional economy to create a lasting legacy.” The £125m pot is divided into six separate funds, each targeted at specific sectors and business types. The funds are overseen by five FSA-regulated venture capital fund managers, which have been carefully chosen for their proven track records of managing and delivering high profile equity and loan investments. They include: n The £15m Proof of Concept Fund and £20m Accelerator Fund which are managed by NorthStar Equity Investors n The £25m North East Technology Fund run by IP Group n The £7.5m Angel Match Fund managed by Rivers Capital Partnership n The £20m Growth Plus Fund managed by FW Capital n The £20m Growth Fund which is run by NEL Fund managers. All of the fund managers will operate out of offices in the region manned by highly experienced investment experts. Investments available to North East firms will range from £20,000 for early stage proof of concept deals to £1.25m at the other end of the scale.

90 success through nanomaterials

A number of funds have also been created specifically for the technology sector. The Proof of Concept Fund will support very early stages of business creation, while the Technology Fund will invest at any stage of development from proof of concept through to seed and development capital. Andrew added: “Together these funds provide a comprehensive resource for regional businesses looking to grow. They have significant potential to make a real difference to businesses right across the North East, especially at a time when we are emerging from recession. “The plan is to help firms to take full advantage of the economic upturn. With these funds in place exciting times lie ahead for ambitious entrepreneurs and businesses based in the region.” Firms interested in accessing funding can visit northeastfinance.org or T: 0191 211 2300 for further information.

Brunel University The Wolfson Centre for Materials Processing incorporating The Centre For Phosphors And Display Materials at Brunel University is lead by Prof Jack Silver (Executive Director). The Wolfson Centre has expertise in polymer and materials processing technology, in particular for extrusion and injection moulding of polymers.

In 2006 the phosphor research group joined the Wolfson Centre. The centre has been in existence for around 40 years and has carried out research and development in all areas of inorganic phosphors during this time. We have built up a wealth of knowledge through our industrial and academic research on many aspects of nanomaterials synthesis, analysis, processing and their applications. This covers areas from control of particle morphologies and size, chemical reactivity to their physical properties such as optical and electronic behaviour, their processing and deposition into prototype devices. The team has key skills covering Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering. Recent work has involved studies on the structure and properties of polymer based nanocomposites, nanoparticle surface coatings, nano-particle biomarkers, luminescent nanomaterials and their production and surface Plasmon resonance imaging development. An outline of some of these activities is given in the following paragraphs. NANOCOMPOSITIES Clay PET composites: It has been shown that nanocomposites of PET with nanoclay particles can improve the gas barrier, thermal and mechanical properties of packaging items made from pure PET. This project investigated the effect of the nature and level of surfactant used in the conditioning of clay particles in PET nanocomposites. The project investigated the properties of melt-processed nanocomposites and indicated the optimum processing conditions for the production of packaging items from PET/ nanoclay composites. NANOPARTICLE SURFACE COATINGS Bio-ceramic surface coatings: This project was concerned with the production and properties of bio-ceramic surface coatings for orthopaedic implant components. Nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite (HA) were synthesised and put into a liquid suspension with carbon nanotubes. Sample surfaces were coated with the nano particle by electrophoretic deposition. Coatings approximately 200nm were laid onto the wear and load bearing surfaces of the metal implant.

92 success through nanomaterials

The coatings were then bonded to the surface by low temp (800 ÂşC) sintering treatment. It was the nature of the nanoparticles that enabled the sintering to take place at this temperature. The mechanical properties of the coatings were measured using nano indentation techniques. The resulting coatings had improved mechanical performance over pure HA coatings, in particular for the fracture toughness. CNTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have been shown to be bio compatible and the composite coatings therefore have potential for surgical implants.

TECHNOLOGY PROVIDER

Antiviral surface coatings: Nano particles of a number of elements and compounds have been shown to have anti-viral properties. Surface coatings of nano particles that possessed the antiviral properties were produced. This involved deposition of the particles onto various types of surface and investigation of the level of bonding the coatings could achieve while maintaining anti-viral activity. The adhesion of the coatings to the surfaces was measured by a nanoscratch test. This work is now being further developed in industry. The image (top right) shows a nanoscratch track on a nanoparticle surface coating on a polymer substrate. The removal of the particles can be clearly seen. EQUIPMENT Excellent facilities are available for undertaking synthetic and quantitative analysis on nanomaterials which include well equipped chemistry labs, clean rooms and glove boxes, x-ray powder diffraction, FE-SEM, TEM, EDX, WDX, XPS and AFM, FT-IR spectroscopy/microscopy, laser Raman microscopy with a range of available lasers, fluorescence, reflectance and absorbance spectrophotometers. Horiba particle size analyser, A Micromaterials NanoTest 600 nanoindentation instrument with nanoscratch facility and an extensive range of TA Instruments thermal analysis equipment (DMA, TGA-MS, DSC, DTA-MS and Ares rheometer).

Promethean Particles Formulating Solutions with Nanomaterials

Promethean Particles design, develop and manufacture inorganic nanoparticle dispersions for a range of corporate clients around the world. The materials produced are used in a variety of applications by our customers; these include green energy (photovoltaics, fuel cells, hydrogen storage); chemical and polymer industries; automotive; power generation and healthcare. In each case the materials we provide enable a new product or add functionality to an exisiting product.

Our customers work with us because we offer a unique and flexible approach to nanoparticle manufacture through our patent protected continuous hydrothermal production process. This process allows highly controlled production of a broad range of materials in one step. Continuous hydrothermal synthesis offers a number of advantages over other nanomaterial manufacturing technologies including particle control, online formulation and commercial scale production. PARTICLE CONTROL Promethean Particles technology allows the manufacture of a broad range of materials from metals through to complex metal oxides, sulfides and selenides. Nanomaterial control also extends to the particle size, size distribution and morphology. For example we have manufactured particles, platelets, rods and nanotubes of a variety of materials from hydroxyapatite to tungsten oxide. ONLINE FORMULATION All nanomaterials are produced in dispersion. These are typically aqueous dispersions but 94 success through nanomaterials

we also have experience of solvothermal processing. The dispersion element is then taken one step further with online formulation during particle manufacture. Depending on the customer and application requirements this has included incorporating surfactants, phase transfer to other solvents and encapsulation in polymers. This allows one step manufacture of ready to use products allowing our customers to incoporate the nanoparticles directly into their end-use application. In addition, producing nanomaterials in dispersion avoids the health and safety concerns over the inhalation of dry powders and exposure to staff and clients is minimised. COMMERCIAL SCALE PRODUCTION Design and development work is carried out at lab scale (grams per hour) with manufacturing capacity currently at 12 tons per annum. We provide two services to our customers, firstly, design and development of the ideal material for their application and secondly, commercial scale manufacture. We recognise that every application is unique and requires a tailor-made

material to achieve optimum results; hence, Promethean works with each customer to develop the materials they need to service their market. This includes screening particle composition, doping of binary oxides with other elements or providing samples with a range of particle sizes or shapes depending on the application. Once the nanomaterial with the target functionality for the application has been identified, large scale manufacture using the Promethean technology is possible. Material synthesis transfers directly to the manufacturing plant, with a current capacity of 12 tons per annum (dry weight equivalent). For customers who require larger quantities there are a range of options including licensing the technology for production on site for direct incorporation into their production line.

Hosokawa Micron Ltd Nanopowder technology creating a new generation of particles

Nanoparticles have huge potential across many industrial areas, particularly in electronics, information technologies and healthcare. Not only do they offer the attractive possibility of more effect for much less mass, but in many cases the product effect can be quite different from that achievable with micron sized particles, for example, their optical, mechanical, thermal and electrical properties show step changes at particular sub-micron particle size thresholds. Nanosized particles of various materials have a high potentiality to improve the performance of numerous kinds of products, or to create functional new materials. Their economic potential is therefore immense, although their advantages will need to be balanced against environmental effects which are in many cases still unknown.

Johnson Matthey Flame Spray Pyrolysis - a unique facility for the production of nanopowders

Johnson Matthey, the international speciality chemicals company, has dedicated capability to produce a range of nanopowders using the flame spray pyrolysis technique.

FIGURE 2 UV-vis spectra of ZnO Nanopowders (0.02 wt% ZnO suspensions in H2O)

The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility can be used to produce a wide array of nanopowders ranging from single metal oxides such as Al2O3 to more complex mixed oxides or catalysts. It has capacity of up to 100 g/hr and a number of process variables will enable the preparation of well-defined target materials. The creation of this development scale Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility was funded by a grant provided by the DTI under its Micro and Nano Technology (“MNT”) Network initiative. Housed at Johnson Matthey’s Technology Centre near Reading, UK, it offers a unique facility for the production for nanomaterials. HOW IT WORKS Flame spray pyrolysis is a one step process where liquid feed - a metal precursor(s) dissolved in a solvent - is sprayed with an oxidising gas into a flame zone. The spray is combusted and the precursor(s) converted into nano sized metal or metal oxide particles, depending on the metal and the operating conditions. The technique is flexible and allows the use of a wide range of precursors, solvents and process conditions, thus providing control over particle size and composition. Flame spray pyrolysis is a versatile technique for producing nanoparticles and can be used to make metal, metal oxide and more complex nanoparticle materials. Johnson Matthey has specialised in using the technique to make nanoparticle catalysts and other materials and has developed considerable in-house expertise in this area. This knowledge is transferable into other application areas. MATERIALS AVAILABLE TO DATE The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility has been used to produce zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticle powders which find application as UV barriers. The UV barrier effectiveness of a commercially available ZnO nanomaterial has been compared with one produced using Johnson Matthey’s flame spray pyrolysis equipment. For the flame spray pyrolysis produced material, a Zn precursor is dissolved in an appropriate organic solvent and the reaction mixture sprayed into a supporting CH4/O2 flame. The compound undergoes decomposition or pyrolysis in an O2 rich environment to give a clean white powder of nano size ZnO. A typical micrograph of the material is shown below. 102 success through nanomaterials

TEM micrograph of ZnO nanomaterials prepared by flame spray pyrolysis. Flame spray parameters can be used in the preparation of nanopowders to influence the particle size or specific surface area. Studying the effect of the Zn precursor concentration demonstrates how an increase in precursor concentration in the feed led to a production rate ranging from ca. 30 to 120 g/hr and resulted in an increase in crystallite size of the product (Figure 1). All of the powders showed smaller crystallite size compared with a commercial ZnO nanopowder. FIGURE 1 Effect of Precursor Concentration on ZnO Particle Size

The UV barrier effectiveness of a typical ZnO flame made Johnson Matthey material is compared with the commercial ZnO nanomaterial at 0.02 wt% in water using UVvis spectroscopy. Figure 2 shows the spectra of both ZnO nanomaterials. It is important to note that no stabiliser was used. As expected for UV barrier materials, no transmission (T%) is observed for both products in the UV region. In the visible region, however, Johnson Matthey flame made ZnO material shows increased transparency properties with higher T%.

Intertek MSG Meeting all you materials characterisation needs

Intertek MSG is playing a major role in the NanoCentral network as the core provider of characterisation and measurement, bringing to the collaboration many years of experience in the analysis of nanomaterials.

Developments in nanotechnology are concerned with two issues - the design and manufacture of small particles, and the incorporation of these particles in a controlled manner into a liquid or solid carrier matrix. Of course the purpose is to produce materials where the inclusion of the nanoparticles leads to an improvement of the physical properties of the final materials. Intertek MSG can contribute, through the provision of detailed analysis, to both areas. NANOPARTICLES Intertek MSG has a comprehensive array of tools for the measurement of nanoparticle properties, including; n Analysis of particle size and morphology using electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, Photon Cross-Correlation Spectroscopy and a Disc Centrifuge – allowing quantitative analysis of particles as small as a few nanometres. n Application of image analysis to generate quantitative information on size and shape distributions. n Carbon nanotubes analysis using raman spectroscopy to monitor tube diameter and sample purity, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and elemental analysis to provide information on sample purity or catalyst residue content. n Coating analysis using spectroscopic techniques, or by surface analysis. 104 success through nanomaterials

NANODISPERSIONS The particle sizing techniques mentioned above can equally be applied to dispersions of particles – although for the PCCS and disc centrifuge methods it will in general be necessary to generate dilute solutions before reproducible results can be obtained. In order to directly assess concentrated dispersions new electron microscopy instrumentation, combining low-vacuum imaging with a wet-STEM stage, has been recently introduced at MSG. The smaller the size of a particle or feature, the more intrusive and misleading the presence of the conductive coating that is required for conventional SEM analysis - and the more welcome its absence! Several modes of operation of the new instrument circumvent this issue. In addition, beam deceleration emphasises very fine surface detail at the expense of unwanted sub-surface interactions. The presence of scanning transmission electron detectors (STEM) allows us to form images using electrons passing through a thin sample, and the WetSTEM system means that we can now image truly wet samples (relative humidity conditions up to 100%), and materials otherwise inaccessible by conventional electron microscopy – for example giving us access to in-situ studies of aggregation of nanoparticles within a dispersion during a drying process.

Complementary techniques, such as x-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods can provide additional information on the composite morphology, and quantify aspects of homogeneity or orientation. PHYSICAL PROPERTIES AND PRODUCT PERFORMANCE Intertek MSG can characterise a wide range of physical properties, in order to assess the impact of the incorporation of nanoparticles in a matrix. Capabilities include; n Mechanical properties (e.g. toughness, scratch resistance or impact strength) n Optical performance (clarity, reflectance, refractive index) n Electrical properties (conductivity, charge dissipation). Intertek MSG’s expertise stretches well beyond the nanomaterials arena, and through our own scientists and those of the wider Intertek group of laboratories, we can service all your materials testing, characterisation and certification requirements.
